Sheila meets Sonia, tightlipped on possible Union Cabinet berth
New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today met Congress President Sonia Gandhi amid speculation that she may be moved to Union Cabinet when a reshuffle-cum-expansion of Council of Ministers takes place.
The Chief Minister refused to divulge details of the meeting, which lasted for around half-an-hour, saying it was "routine".
"I keep meeting her," the three-time chief minister said.
When asked about speculation that she may find a place in the Union Cabinet, the Chief Minister said she has not been informed about any such development.
"I have not been informed about it. I have a job in hand as Chief Minister of Delhi and I am doing it. I will do what my party wants me to do," Dikshit said.
The Chief Minister said as of now her focus is on ensuring effective implementation of various social welfare schemes and launching a slew of other projects.
Assembly election in Delhi is scheduled to take place in December 2013 and Dikshit has already directed various agencies and departments to improve their functioning.
As there has been talk of a cabinet reshuffle in Delhi Government, Dikshit is believed to have discussed the issue with Gandhi as well.
