Assam cabinet ready for expansion

Chief minister Tarun Gogoi is all set to expand his cabinet with the induction of four ministers anew on Tuesday.
Governor PB Acharya will administer the new ministers the oath of office and secrecy at a brief function at the Raj Bawan in the morning. The four ministers include Gautom Roy and Siddique Ahmed.

Last year, Gogoi dropped Siddique Ahmed for dissidence while Roy was sacked after the massive reshuffle.
Moreover, the 13 new parliamentary secretaries and the four ministers would get their portfolios towards the evening.
