Why Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of the Delhi government and the head of the Aam Aadmi party, does not keep any ministry to himself? While there are six ministers in the Delhi government except Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. The work of 33 departments is divided among all these six ministers. In this division, more than half of the ministries fell under Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who came under the charge of the CBI. Now the lack of ministry of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is being discussed in the political circles as Arvind Kejriwal will take over a ministry after the resignation of Minister Manish Sisodia. However, the BJP has a different argument about Arvind Kejriwal’s treatment of the ministry. He says that Arvind Kejriwal does not handle branch ministry for fear of evading responsibility. On the other hand, political analysts believe that Arvind Kejriwal, who will not assume the responsibility of a single department in the new government, will have to assume the responsibility of key ministries in this difficult test for now.
There are only four ministers in Arvind Kejriwal’s cabinet.
The arrest of Manish Sisodia, deputy chief minister of the Delhi government and in charge of more than half of the departments in the state, sparked a political crisis in the state. According to political analysts, this political crisis is at its maximum because Manish Sisodia used to be given a maximum number of ministries in the state. How these ministries will function and how much impact it will have on the state is being judged in politics. Political analysts say that when Aam Aadmi party minister Satyendar Jain was jailed, his ministry was also given to Manish Sisodia. Now Manish Sisodia is also in custody of the CBI. Who takes the responsibility of his ministries in such a situation? There is a discussion that Arvind Kejriwal, the prime minister without portfolio, will now take charge of these ministries. Again, like Satyendar Jain, Manish Sisodia’s departments will also be divided among other ministers or will be done by making another MLA a minister.
Normally there can be seven ministers in the Delhi government. In this, apart from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, there is a cabinet of six ministers. After Satyendar Jain was imprisoned, there were only five ministers left in Arvind Kejriwal’s cabinet. Now only four ministers remain in Arvind Kejriwal’s cabinet from the custody of Manish Sisodia. In the cabinet consisting of 33 departments, Manish Sisodia handled the work of eighteen departments. Apart from this, Kailash Gehlot has four wallets, Rajkumar has four, Gopal Rai has two and Imran Hussain has two wallets. According to political analysts, running and handling Delhi’s entire cabinet structure with only four ministers is not only difficult but fraught with challenges. Political analyst SS Parashar says Manish Sisodia has important portfolios ranging from all Delhi development departments to ministries like education, health and finance. In such a situation, these departments cannot function without a minister. Political pundits believe that in such unfavorable circumstances either Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal himself will have to come forward and take over the responsibility of some of these ministries and the ministries will have to be divided.
