SCINDIA IS RUN-AWAY VICTOR IN MP CABINET EXPANSION

Rahil Nora Chopra : Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan has expanded his cabinet by inducting more than a dozen Former Congress MLAs. In this expansion, the lion’s share of ministerial berths having gone to Gwalior-Chambal and Malwa belts. On the other hand, Mahakaushal and Vindhya regions, of which Jabalpur and Rewa are the headquarters, have got the short shrift. It seems that Jyotiraditya Scindia has got more share than Shivraj Singh Chouhan. Now, there seems to be a three-way tussle over prized portfolios — Chouhan’s old guard, Scindia’s team and long-time BJP leaders, who were picked by the central leadership over some of the veterans. As with the list of ministers, sources say, the BJP central leadership will take the call on portfolio allocation too. Shivraj Singh Chouhan is likely to visit the national capital in this regard. Sources in BJP said that after grabbing 41 percent berths in the state cabinet, Scindia loyalists are insisting on big departments — including those they had in the previous Congress government.
