Approaching the BJP high command in New Delhi seems to bring fruits for the Peoples’ Conference president-Sajad Lone, who may get an additional charge of transport ministry, sources privy to the development shared.
The sources said that unhappy with the present portfolio of ‘low profile’ Social Welfare department, the PC president resigned and flew to New Delhi to convince the BJP high command, who had promised him a reputable portfolio.
Soon after being ‘disappointed’ with the approach of local BJP unit, the important ally of the party, preferred to resign and fly to New Delhi to remind it of its promises, before coming to power.
The sources said that after convincing the BJP high command, Lone has brightened his chances to get ministry of his interest, preferably transport, which is under independent charge of Sunil Sethi.
“The BJP high command has fixed the issue of Sajad Lone and the disgruntled leader may soon get additional charge. He has chance to get additional charge of Science and Technology or Transport, later is more in talks,” sources said.
