Quoting the PM, the minister said, "The present Cabinet will not meet again before the election. Everybody will go to their electoral constituencies. As a result, it's hard to meet in this period."
"It's hard to say that who will win the elections. The people of the country will give their votes. Only they know that who will be given their mandates in future. A new parliament, a new Cabinet will be elected and take charges. It's hard to say that who will be in the new Cabinet. Hope, all of you will be better. Thank you," she said.
