There are currently three vacancies in the cabinet. Apart from this, the discussion of changing two-three ministers is going on for the last few days due to the assessment of the performance of the ministers and the appointment dispute during the tenure of six months.
Although Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami himself has recently ruled out the possibility of cabinet expansion or reshuffle. In a conversation with the media, he had said that the efforts to expand the organization are going on and at present, the entire focus of the party is on this.
On the other hand, it is also believed that the Dhami government is going to complete the six-month term on September 23.
