According to the official sources, the reason behind calling this special Cabinet is not clear yet since the last meeting was held Thursday.
"The reason behind calling this special Cabinet is not clear. There could be discussions on some special issues. The ministers have been informed about the meeting. The chief minister will leave for Delhi after the meeting," an official told news agency PTI.
When contacted, a senior minister in the state Cabinet said that "even ministers like us have not been told why such a special Cabinet meeting has been called".
"We have come to know about it (the meeting) only today late in the evening. I think there could be a discussion on some important issues which the chief minister wants to brief the Cabinet about," he told the news agency Saturday.
