Portfolios to UP ministers very soon: Siddharth Nath
 
(Lucknow, Mar,20,2017):Portfolios to new ministers of Uttar Pradesh are likely to be allotted "very soon", cabinet minister Siddharth Nath Singh said today.

A 47member Council of Ministers, including two deputy chief ministers, was sworn in by Governor Ram Naik yesterday.

"The portfolios are being worked out. The process for allocation of departments is on and hopefully it will be done very soon," Singh told PTI here.

Singh and Shrikant Sharma are the two UP ministers entrusted with the task of acting as an interface between the government and the media.

He said that soon after the allocation of portfolios, the date of the Assembly session would be finalised after consultation with the Governor, who organised an 'At Home' at Raj Bhawan this evening for the new council of ministers.

Besides two deputies, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's team has 22 cabinet ministers, nine ministers of state with independent charge and 13 ministers of state.

Earlier in the day, the chief minister said the state budget for 201718 will be prepared keeping in mind the promises made in BJP's 'sankalp patra'.

Adityanath, who was swornin as the 21st Chief Minister of UP yesterday, has promised to work for all sections of the society without any discrimination, pursuing the agenda of 'sabka sath, sabka vikas' (with all, development for all).
