"The decision on cabinet reshuffle is taken by the party high command and their orders would be followed," Rawat said here, upon returning after a visit to the national capital.
He, however, said that a berth is vacant in the cabinet about which he apprised Congress Uttarakhand In-charge Ambika Soni during his Delhi visit.
Notably, the Congress, which touched the majority mark of 36 in the state Assembly after its victory in Bhagwanpur bypoll, has been rife with demands of a subsequent cabinet reshuffle, particularly by former Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna camp.
Bahuguna, along with his supporters have been demanding that the seat share of Progressive Democratic Front (PDF) in the state government should be reduced, so that some of its own MLAs are anointed as ministers.
The former Chief Minister had even pressed for this demand in his meeting with Congress President Sonia Gandhi last week.
