Not possible to accommodate all districts in reshuffle: CM

While the resentment over the recent ministry reshuffle continues unabated with many BJD leaders openly expressing their discontent, BJD supremo and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday diplomatically clarified that it is impossible to accommodate all districts in a ministry reshuffle due to constitutional restrictions.

“I know that we have 30 districts in the state and it’s not possible to accommodate all districts in Ministry Reshuffle due to Constitutional restrictions,” replied the CM when asked about his take on the ongoing resentment among the BJD leaders over the ministry reshuffle.

According to the 91st Amendment to the Constitution, the size of the Council of Ministers at the Centre and the States has been limited to 15 per cent of the number of members in the Lok Sabha or the State Legislature.
