Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday distributed portfolios to his ministers who figured in the last reshuffle. After enough tussle in the Yadav clan over the controversial minister Gayatri Prasad Prajapati, he was still not given the charge of mining department.

It may be mentioned that Gayatri Prajapati was heading Mining department before he was sacked by the Chief Minister ostensibly after Allahabad High Court ordered a CBI probe into illegal mining in UP.

Below is the list of ministers along with their portfolios:

Gayatri Prasad: Transport Department

Manoj Kumar Pandey: Department of Electronics and Information Technology

Shivakant Ojha: Medical and Health Department

Ziauddin Rizwi: Livestock Department

Yasar Shah: Taxes and Registration (business) Department

Riyaz Ahmad: Fisheries and Department of Public Enterprises

Ravidas Mehrotra: Family planning, maternal and child welfare

Narendra Verma: Department of Development and sugar cane mills

Shankhlal Manjhi: Social Welfare, Welfare of Scheduled Castes and Tribes Welfare and military

Abhishek Mishra: Vocational Education and Skills Development

Along with this, Mehboob Ali has been given added responsibility of Minor Irrigation Department by Governor Ram Naik on the recommendations of Chief Minister.
