Jaipur: In a sigh of relief to the Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot after getting rap from the High Court and the party high command for the Gopalgarh incident and alleged links ofWater Resource minister Mahipal Maderna with missing nurse Bhanwari Devi, the Congress President Sonia Gandhi has granted her consent for Cabinet reshuffle in the state.

Walking on a thin ice after the two major issues which tarnished party’s image, Gehlot held several meeting with the party president earlier this week on the proposal to remove certain ministers from the Cabinet and to introduce some new faces of the party.

Gehlot successfully explained about the positive role of the ruling Congress party in the state in these two cases and garnered support from Sonia Gandhi over the reshuffling of Cabinet in the state. The Rajasthan CM has handed over the new list of ministers to the party high command.

In order to improve party’s image in the state, Gehlot has taken Jat community into consideration while inducting new faces into the party.
