Former Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Friday heads the National Capital to meet senior BJP leaders, said sources. The former Assam CM’s visit to Delhi comes amid speculations of an intending reshuffle in the Union Cabinet and his possible inclusion in the Cabinet.
He also met Defence Minister Rajnath Singh at a dinner hosted by Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi on Thursday in Guwahati. Present CM of Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma was also present at the dinner held at Assam Raj Bhavan.
Sonowal was chief minister of the BJP-led Assam government in 2016. There also has been an assumption that he was called by the party leadership to the national capital for consultations ahead of a reshuffle of the Narendra Modi cabinet.
