The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Uttar Pradesh government, headed by chief minister Yogi Adityanath, is set for a reshuffle soon and the party will appoint a working president of its unit in the country’s most populous state, two persons familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.
“The matter was discussed in a meeting Yogi had with BJP chief Amit Shah in New Delhi,” one of the two said on condition of anonymity . “The date of the reshuffle will be communicated soon.”
Uttar Pradesh can have a maximum 75 ministers, but the current council of ministers has just 43 members. Three ministers resigned after being elected to the Lok Sabha.
