Demand for cabinet reshuffle has been increasing for several months
Govind Singh Dotasra, Harish Chaudhary and Raghu Sharma submitted their resignation in writing to Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Friday, while AICC General Secretary Ajay Maken said they wanted to work for the party.
While Dotasra is the leader of the CCP, Harish Chaudhary and Raghu Sharma are respectively in charge of party affairs in Punjab and Gujrat.
The clamor for a cabinet reshuffle has been mounting for several months, with Camp Pilot demanding to welcome supporters of the former government deputy chief minister.
Besides Congressmen, independents who back the government and MPs who defected from BSP in Congress also expect to be inducted into the new cabinet.
Sachin Pilot fights for the experience, the young people in the office, the party
On Wednesday, Sachin Pilot said a combination of experience and youth should be accommodated in government and the Congress party.
Asked about his role, Pilot said he had fulfilled all the responsibilities given to him so far and would do what the party asked him to do.
Pilot said young people and workers on the ground will need to be empowered.
“When they realize that they are fully participating in government, we will certainly form government again in 2023,” he said, quoting the PTI.
