ITANAGAR, Jan 11: The cabinet expansion of Pema Khandu led BJP government is expected to take place on Saturday. The names of potential cabinet inductee include parliamentary secretary for education Bamang Felix, Tezu MLA Dr Mahesh Chai and Ziro-Hapoli MLA Tage Taki.
RSS along with majority of ‘original’ BJP MLAs are reportedly pushing for Taki. The three cabinet posts are vacant following the dropping of Takam Pario, Tanga Byaling and Rajesh Tacho. CM Khandu had dropped them following rebellion against his govt.
Union minister for Road, Transport and Highway Nitin Gadkari along with BJP National General Secretary Ram Madhav is expected to attend the swearing in ceremony, according to sources. Gadkari will also dedicate two roads namely Papu-Yupia-Potin 2 lane and Itanagar-Hollongi 4 lane to the nation.
