Lucknow: The first reshuffle of the Yogi Adityanath ministry in Uttar Pradesh will take place on Wednesday, a Raj Bhavan official said. The reshuffle, and the possible induction of new members, is likely to fill the slots that have fallen vacant in the last few months, particularly after some ministers got elected to the Lok Sabha.

This will be the first cabinet reshuffle after Adityanath took charge in the state in March 2017 to head a 47-member ministry.

Three of the 47 ministers — Rita Bahuguna Joshi, Satyadev Pachauri and SP Singh Baghel — were elected to the Lok Sabha in May.
Another minister, OP Rajbhar, who heads the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party, was sacked for causing embarrassment to the BJP-led government.
