After meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday,  Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti  has made  up her mind to  effect  much  awaited ministerial reshuffle in the  coalition government, according to sources.

She apprised  Prime Minister of the bad name that the government was getting due to  alleged charges of corruption of some of the BJP ministers about whom the local media  had written extensively post demonetization .

Sources disclosed that the  performance of the ministers too  would be taken  into account .  Some of the ministers had become a non-performing liabilities.


Against this backdrop, the return of  Altaf Bukhari, a vibrant MLA from Amira Kadal , Srinagar and former Public Works Minister , to the ministry is considered certainty. BJP will give its own list of the faces that it wishes to change.

Ram Madhav, BJP  General Secretary  is likely to make recommendations after consulting Amit Shah.
