Cabinet reshuffle a futile exercise: Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi: Bureaucrat-turned-activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday flayed the much-anticipated Cabinet reshuffle as a futile exercise.
According to CNN-IBN, Kejriwal said the Congress was playing musical chairs.
Seven ministers have stepped down to make way for newer, and possibly, younger faces.
The new ministers will take oath in the morning.
Ahead of the reshuffle, SM Krishna quit as external affairs minister, Ambika Soni stepped down as information and broadcasting minister, Subodh Kant Sahai resigned as tourism minister and Mukul Wasnik as social justice and empowerment minister.
The ministers of state who quit were Vincent Pala (water resources), Agatha Sangma (rural development) and Mahadeo Singh Khandela (tribal affairs). A Rashtrapati Bhavan communiqué on Saturday evening said the resignations have been accepted.
