West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will reshuffle her cabinet due to the arrest of Partha Chatterjee in the teacher recruitment scam case. Mamta has already expelled Parth from the cabinet. Five new faces may join the Mamta cabinet. Mamta Banerjee said that we will reshuffle our ministry, but will not change it completely as is being claimed by some media reports.
Actually, there was an expectation of a change in Mamta’s cabinet. Senior minister Partha Chatterjee was removed from his post after crores of rupees notes were recovered.

Sources said that five new faces will be brought in the cabinet. The reshuffle may be announced on Wednesday. Four existing ministers will be removed.
