New Delhi, April 19 (IANS) After the Congress's debacle in the Delhi municipal elections, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Thursday hinted at a reshuffle in her government saying there is always a "possibility of change".
"There is always a possibility of change which cannot be denied," Dikshit told reporters in reply to a question about absence of change in the party's top leadership.
Asked whether a cabinet reshuffle could be expected, the chief minister evaded a direct reply. "When it will be done, I will tell you," she said.
Dikshit, who earlier shrugged off responsibility for the Congress's defeat saying that civic polls were not her election, admitted it was a lesson for the party.
"We will take stock of the defeat and it is certainly a lesson for us," she said.
The Congress was defeated in the recently held civic elections in the capital with the Bharatiya Janata Party retaining power, despite a dip in its overall strength. The party won 138 of the 272 wards in the three newly-created municipal corporations, down from 164 in 2007.
The Congress won in 78 wards, up from 64 in the previous polls.
