No parleys held on cabinet rejig: Chandy
Kerala chief minister Oommen Chandy on Sunday scotched speculation that a reshuffle of his cabinet was imminent holding that no discussion on the matter had been held in the Congress or with the UDF partners. ‘No discussions have been held on this so far. Parleys should be held with the coalition partners, also within the Congress and finally get the approval of the party high command. Nothing has happened so far,’ Chandy told reporters at Kottayam. Local media have been rife with the speculation that some changes in the Congress nominees in the cabinet was on the cards with state Assembly Speaker G Karthikeyan being accommodated in the ministry with an important portfolio.
