Three Rajasthan ministers have written to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, offering to step down and work for the party ahead of a possible cabinet reshuffle in the state.
Congress general secretary Ajay Maken told reporters that those who have offered to resign include Revenue Minister Harish Choudhary, Medical and Health Minister Dr Raghu Sharma and Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasara.
Maken said, “I am happy to inform you that three promising ministers of our Rajasthan cabinet have today written to Sonia Gandhi offering to step down as ministers. She has also expressed her desire to work for the party.” “
Mr. Maken said, “The Congress party respects him. We are happy that there are such promising people who want to work for the party.”
Mr. Dotasara is currently the state president of the Congress, while Sharma has recently been appointed by the party in-charge of Gujarat and Harish Choudhary as in-charge of Punjab.
Two days ago, Mr Gehlot had said that the cabinet reconstitution would happen soon.
At present there are 21 members in the state cabinet including the Chief Minister.
The number of MLAs in the state is 200, according to which the cabinet can have a maximum of 30 members.
