Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav is likely to expand his Cabinet Ministry tomorrow with the re-entry of tainted former Mines Minister Gayatri Prajapati it seems like that he will be surrounded with controversy as a social activist has filed a petition with the Governor Ram Nayak over the re-induction of tainted minister.
There are chances of some new ministers were scheduled to administer oath of office and secrecy in the presence of Governor tomorrow at Raj Bhawan.
With re-induction of Prajapati on the cards as part of a compromise formula to cover the flames in the Yadav family that occurs a major political crisis recently, activist Nutan Thakur has petitioned the Governor against making him minister again.
Since Akhilesh Yadav assumed office in 2012 this will be the eighth expansion of the government.
The UP council of ministers can have 60 ministers and there are three vacancies at present.
Nutan filed the petition before the Governor just 48 hours before the oath ceremony requesting him not to re-induct Prajapati.
The activist in her petition said Prajapati was removed as minister on serious corruption charges after the order of Allahabad High Court for CBI enquiry and the CBI report was presented before the court.
Nutan said when Prajapati was removed as minister; he had lost the pleasure of the Governor. Hence, he cannot be re- inducted in the Ministry unless the facts and reasons on which he had lost the pleasure of the Governor get removed.
