Why was the Cabinet expanded?
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina expanded the cabinet in an effort to speed up the administrative process, and to complete ongoing development projects on schedule, insiders told the Dhaka Tribune. The government aims to finish pending work in the ministries before the 11th parliamentary election. The sources claimed that the prime minister has witnessed slowdown in activities of at least six ministries, and took the initiative to expand the cabinet to finish those activities swiftly. Adding that there could also be a political agenda behind the expansion, sources stated that the prime minister aims to ensure victory in constituencies where Awami League is lagging behind in terms of vote or development project implementation.

Addressing the matter, Health Minister Mohammed Nasim said: “The process of expanding the Cabinet is a continuous process, and it is part of an effort to rejuvenate the Cabinet.” Agriculture Minister Matia Chowdhury also echoed the same. On the other hand, several central leaders of the Awami League has declined to comment on the recent expansion of the Cabinet. Many of them believe that inclusion of central leaders in the decision would have been a better move. Sources also claimed that the cabinet could see another wave of reshuffle, and it could happen as early as this month. This correspondent has learned that much of the election manifesto of the ruling party Awami League is yet to be implemented, and the primary goal of the expanded cabinet will be to finish the pending projects and activities.
