Panaji: A senior minister Pramod Sawant-led cabinet has demanded that the team should be reshuffled replacing the inefficient members with those who can perform.
State Ports Minister Michael Lobo, who is also BJP MLA, told reporters that he has urged the Chief minister to reshuffle the cabinet replacing the inefficient ministers with those who can perform.
He said that the correction in the cabinet is required as state will be facing elections for Goa legislative assembly in the year 2022. “Exactly one year later, the Code of Conduct for the Assembly election would be enforced,” Lobo said.
The minister was talking to reporters after meeting the Chief Minister at his official residence at Altinho in Panaji.
Lobo said that he has not suggested whom to drop from the cabinet, but has urged the need for reshuffle. “I have requested for reshuffle, now it is prerogative of the Chief minister to decide whom to drop and whom to retain. He might even drop me from the cabinet, if he feels that I am not performing,” the minister said.
Lobo said that the chief minister has been monitoring the performance of all the ministers and know what is required for the state.
