The much talked-about ministry expansion in Assam has finally got the BJP central leadership’s nod and that who makes it to the Sarbananda Sonowal cabinet will be known in a couple of day’s time.

Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said this after he and chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal called on BJP national president Amit Shah at the party headquarters in New Delhi.

The meeting between the three leaders lasted for nearly an hour with the expansion of the ministry that has been the talking point in Assam for a long time topping the discussions.

Sources in the BJP, however, told Northeast Live that although the formal announcement as to who makes it to the list of new ministers is likely to be announced in a couple of day’s time, the formal oath-taking is expected to take place only towards the end of this month.
