Panaji: The Goa Cabinet reshuffle is likely to take place within a month as Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has started the audit of his ministers’ performance and their respective departments.
The audit also includes trouble shooting for various ministries that are busy solving the problems inherited by the erstwhile Congress-led government, Parrikar said.
"Once this exercise is over, I will fulfill my promise of giving one additional portfolio each to the ministers," he said.
"The reshuffle of the portfolios is also possible," he said responding to a question.
After his government came to power in March last year, Parrikar had allotted two portfolios each to his eleven ministers. He had then promised to allot one more portfolio each within six months, after evaluating the performance of the ministers.
"I am reasonably happy with the performance of the ministers. I know that they also face an upheaval task like me in handling the portfolios as we have to clear the mess created by previous Congress-led government," he said.
The ministers often used to refer files to him when they were new, but now the referrals have decreased, he added.
