Cabinet expansion decision left to CM’s discretion.
Five-member team to be formed in each district to communicate party workers’ issues to officials
The long pending cabinet expansion and issues of the party workers were among the issues discussed in the Bharatiya Janata Party core committee meeting held here on Sunday. With three berths in the cabinet still vacant, the decision was left to the discretion of the chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat. The BJP State president Banshidhar Bhagat said this while interacting with the media after the core committee meeting.
Bhagat said that the CM had earlier planned to meet the Union Home minister Amit Shah and then decide on the cabinet expansion. However, Shah fell ill and after recovering had to be hospitalised again so the discussion could not be held. The CM will talk to Shah and then decide on the cabinet expansion, said Bhagat. Regarding the other decision taken in the meeting, he said that a five member team will be formed by the party in each district. The team will be headed by the party’s district head and will comprise four other senior party workers. This team will communicate the issues and complaints of the party workers to the officials in the district while taking the local MLA concerned into confidence. If needed, the issues will be communicated to the party organisation which will attempt to resolve the issues at its level or refer it to the chief minister’s office. This move is aimed at resolving the issue of party workers complaining about the government officials not paying heed to their complaints. If implemented effectively, this decision will boost the morale of the party workers. In addition to discussing various activities of the party especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, the committee also decided that the Bhumi Pujan of the land procured for the party’s office in Dehradun will be held during the Navratri.
The meeting which lasted for about two and half hours was attended by chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, national joint general secretary (organisation) Shiv Prakash, national vice president and state in-charge Shyam Jaju, Union Education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, MPs Ajay Bhatt, Teerath Singh Rawat and cabinet minister Madan Kaushik.
