Indicating the role of the BJP politics in West Bengal, a senior TMC MLA said that cabinet reshuffle is rare in the Mamata government. In the last 11 years, we have seen very few instances. This is a tough time and the situation is different.

The new cabinet has given more space to young faces.  The MLA said that Babul Supriyo, Partha Bhowmik and Snehashish Chakraborty has been inducted into the new cabinet because Mamata wanted that the average age of the new cabinet should be younger.
