Mamata reshuffles Bengal cabinet

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday reshuffled her Cabinet, post her Trinamool Congress' dismal performance in the recently concluded Lok Sabha election. 

According to the new portfolios, Suvendu Adhikary will be the Irrigation and Transport minister. Somen Mahapatra was given Public Health, Engineering and Environment Ministry while Rajib Banerjee will be handling Tribal development ministry. 

This comes on a day when Mamata suffered a jolt after two of her MLAs and over 50 Councillors left the Trinamool Congress to join the Bharatiya Janata Party in New Delhi. 

Tuesday had another surprising development relating to Mamata Banerjee as she announced she would be attending Prime Minister Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony on May 30.
