Rajen Gohain Union minister!

Senior BJP leader Rajen Gohain is likely to be inducted in the Union council of ministers slated to be reshuffled on Tuesday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is believed to have shortlisted the Nagaon MP out of a panel of 4 names from the state. “It is the Prime Minister’s prerogative and we don’t have any idea,” said a top BJP leader in Delhi. Assam BJP leaders are tightlipped on the development in Delhi saying that the suspense would be over by 11 in the morning on Tuesday. An Union minister from Assam was required after Sarbananda Sonowal put in his papers just after he took over as Assam Chief Minister.
