The Congress high command has started focusing on the long pending cabinet reshuffle and political appointments in Rajasthan. The first round of discussions on the blue print of changes have already taken place with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi during Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's visit to Delhi. According to Congress sources, Gehlot will soon have another Delhi visit. In this, there is to be a meeting with Congress President Sonia Gandhi. Changes in Rajasthan will get a green signal after meeting Sonia Gandhi.
Along with the cabinet reshuffle, major political appointments will also be made. There will be appointments on the vacant posts in the Board, Commission and Government Departments. There is a preparation to complete all these works before the third anniversary of the Gehlot government.
In Rajasthan, 30 ministers can be made including the Chief Minister. Now 21 posts are filled, 9 seats are vacant in the cabinet. By giving responsibility to three to four ministers in the organization, 12 to 13 places will be vacant. Of these, 10 new faces will have a chance to get a chance in the first phase. Strategically, two to three posts can be kept vacant.
The effect of Kamaraj formula will be seen in the cabinet reshuffle. Some more ministers may be given the responsibility of the organization. Health Minister Raghu Sharma has recently got the responsibility of Gujarat in-charge. Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasara has been in the post of state president since August last year. There are also discussions about making Revenue Minister Harish Chaudhary the in-charge of Punjab soon. Transport Minister Pratapsingh Khachariyawas can also be given a post in the organization.
The formula for removing senior ministers from the cabinet and giving them posts in the organization is known as Kamaraj formula. With the introduction of Kamaraj formula, one person one post formula will also be applicable. The ministers who will be given or have been given a post in the organization are believed to be removed. Raghu Sharma is in charge of an electoral state like Gujarat. In such a situation, it is believed that he should be removed from the post of minister. If Harish Chaudhary is made in-charge of Punjab or given any other responsibility in the organization, he will also be removed. Govind Singh Dotasara is also in this circle.
The formula for giving place to the Sachin Pilot camp in cabinet reshuffle and political appointments is also yet to be finalised. The demand for pilot camp is equal participation. The issue has been discussed at the level of Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi. Pilot supporters are also sure to find a place in the next cabinet reshuffle and political appointments. Further discussions are expected at the level of the high command on its sharing formula.
The issues of Rajasthan have been discussed in the Chief Minister's meeting with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi. The synergy between the cabinet reshuffle formula and the demands of the pilot camp was also a point of that discussion. Now all eyes are on Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's next visit to Delhi.
