Kolkata: Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee appears to be fully confident of forming her government in West Bengal. Sensing the change in the political ambience in the state, Mamata is quite hopeful of her victory in the Assembly election.

Speculation is rife that the Trinamool Congress has begun to outline the Cabinet before formation of government.

During the poll campaigning, the Trinamool chief has kept saying, “West Bengal politics is destined for a change”.

“People should have patience. Their expectations would be fulfilled.Discussions are on for the future Cabinet,” Mamata said assuring the masses.

As far as the size of Cabinet is concerned, the party’s policy is clear of keeping the Cabinet smaller, as Mamata anticipated the Left government might pass empty exchequer.

According to Mamata, portfolios of education, health and home affairs initially would not be given to any minister. Amongst the ministers to be inducted in the Cabinet of Mamata are Parth Chaterjee, Shobhandev Chattopadhyay, Madan Mitra, Amit Mitra, Upen Biswas, Subrat Bakshi, Arup Biswas, Firhad Hakim and Bratya Basu.

As active intellectuals have worked hard during the movement for change, it would not be easy to accommodate all the contesting candidates in the Cabinet. In this situation, closed ones may not get place in the Cabinet, sources said.
