According to sources, there will be a minor reshuffle in the Council of Ministers before next year's Assembly and General Election, and new Ministers are likely to take oath at Lok Seva Bhawan tomorrow.
Governor Ganeshi Lal, currently in Haryana, is likely to return this evening.
The Cabinet reshuffle has been necessitated following the resignation of the two ministers. Apart from that one more position is lying vacant after the murder of Health and Family Welfare Minister Naba Kishore Das in January.
On May 12, Odisha Assembly Speaker Bikram Keshari Arukha and two tainted Ministers resigned from their respective posts citing personal reasons.
Soon after the resignation of the Speaker, School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash and Labour Minister Srikanta Sahu resigned from the position of MoS.
Recently, a woman BJD worker made 'sexual harassment' allegations against Sahu. Even, the matter reached the police station seeking action against Sahu.
Samir Ranjan Dash, was also dragged into controversy over the alleged suicidal death of BJD zilla parishad member Dharmendra Sahoo. The ZP member was elected from one seat of Dash's Nimapara Assembly constituency.
The government will name a new Speaker in place of Arukha. Sources said the government is mulling to name a woman MLA as new Speaker of the State Assembly.
