Mamata inducts two in her cabinet

Kolkata, Dec 26 (IANS) Two new ministers were Thursday inducted into the West Bengal government while a minister of state was elevated and given independent charge, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced. Binay Krishna Burman, a lawmaker from Mathabhanga in north Bengal’s Cooch Behar district, is the new forest minister, replacing Hiten Burman who stepped down citing health issues and illness. However, political circles feel Hiten Burman got the stick for “non-performance”. Sashi Panja, MLA from Kolkata’s Shyampukur, was sworn in as minister with independent charge and was allotted the women and child welfare portfolio.
