Congress MCD debacle: Dikshit indicates cabinet reshuffle

Delhi,Politics, Thu, 19 Apr 2012 IANS

New Delhi, April 19 (IANS) After the Congress's debacle in the Delhi municipal elections, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Thursday hinted at a reshuffle in her government saying there is always a "possibility of change".




"There is always a possibility of change which cannot be denied," Dikshit told reporters in reply to a question about absence of change in the party's top leadership.


Asked whether a cabinet reshuffle could be expected, the chief minister evaded a direct reply. "When it will be done, I will tell you," she said.


Dikshit, who earlier shrugged off responsibility for the Congress's defeat saying that civic polls were not her election, admitted it was a lesson for the party.


"We will take stock of the defeat and it is certainly a lesson for us," she said.


The Congress was defeated in the recently held civic elections in the capital with the Bharatiya Janata Party retaining power, despite a dip in its overall strength. The party won 138 of the 272 wards in the three newly-created municipal corporations, down from 164 in 2007.


The Congress won in 78 wards, up from 64 in the previous polls.
