Cabinet reshuffle likely Tuesday

The Cabinet is likely to see a reshuffle on Tuesday apparently to infuse dynamism into government activities ahead of the next general election.


State Minister for Fisheries and Livestock Narayan Chandra Chanda, AKM Shahjahan Kamal, an MP from Laxmipur-3 constituency, and IT expert ‘Mustafa Jabbar' have been invited to remain present at Bangabhaban on Tuesday.


Both the state minister and the MP confirmed  that Cabinet Secretary M Shafiul Alam called them on Monday asking them to be present at Bangabhaban at 6:30pm on Tuesday.


“The Cabinet Secretary invited me to be present at Bangabhaban at 6:30pm on Tuesday,” Narayan Chandra told journalist, reports UNB.


Contacted, Mustafa Jabbar said, “It’s an unofficial matter. I can’t say anything right now. You’ll be able to know officially.”


Speculations run high that Narayan Chandra might be promoted as Fisheries and Livestock Minister which fell vacant following the death of Fisheries and Livestock Minister Muhammed Sayedul Hoque on December 16 last.


Shahjahan Shamim and Mustafa Jabbar also might be inducted into the Cabinet.
