The Fourth Dhrubajyoti Roy ministry (Hindi: चतुर्थ ध्रुबज्योति रॉय मंत्रिमंडल) was the 8th union council of ministers of the Republic of Children's Group which was formed after the December 2016 general election. The ministry, the fourth-ever union ministry to be headed by Prime Minister Dhrubajyoti Roy, was formed on 30 December 2016 after the outstanding victory of the Secular Party-led coalition in the general election. The ministry remained in office until its dissolution on 12 April 2017 when prime minister Dhrubajyoti Roy resigned after being chosen to succeed Sarala Baishya as the President who had resigned on 11 April 2017. Dhrubajyoti Roy was succeeded by Sarala Baishya as the prime minister.

History

The December 2016 general election resulted in the outstanding victory of the United Alliance which consisted of the Secular Party and the Independent Party as coalition partners which won more than 90% of the total seats in the parliament while the Freedom Party which broke out of the alliance to contest the election independently was only able to win two seats.

After the declaration of the results, the coalition parties elected Secular Party leader and outgoing prime minister Dhrubajyoti Roy as its leader and subsequently as the Prime Minister. Dhrubajyoti Roy along with his cabinet was sworn-in into office for a record fourth time by Acting President Sarala Baishya.

Composition

The council of ministers which was formed and sworn-in on 30 December 2016 except for two ministers, Abhiraj Kar and Bishakha Das who took oath on 11 January 2017. The ministry composed of Prime Minister Dhrubajyoti Roy, Deputy Prime Minister Tanishkaa Patranabish, four cabinet ministers - Anoushkaa Patranabish, Abhiraj Kar, Arnab Deka and Asmi Patranabis, four ministers of state with independent charge - Anirban Phatowali, Bhargab Jyoti Medhi, Manoj Chetry and Bishakha Das, and five ministers of state - Rajdeep Deka, Himprakash Deka, Arpan Deka, Tusharjit Deka and Abhirup Patranabis.

Anoushkaa Patranabish, then Governor of Beltola and Administrator of Central Guwahati had resigned to be appointed a minister. Abhiraj Kar and Arnab Deka who were ministers of state in the previous ministry were promoted to cabinet rank. Anirban Phatowali, the former Governor of Beltola was re-inducted as minister of state with independent charge.

Reshuffle

The first cabinet reshuffle took place on 5 February 2017 when Asmi Patranabis and Bhargab Jyoti Medhi replaced their portfolios. On 17 February, Prime Minister Dhrubajyoti Roy carried out yet another reshuffle in the union cabinet which witnessed Deputy Prime Minister Tanishkaa Patranabish being dropped from the ministry and being replaced by Abhiraj Kar. In the same event, Anirban Phatowali was promoted to cabinet rank while Rajdeep Deka was appointed as a Minister of State with independent charge.

Defections

Soon after the election, several MPs who were elected from the Secular Party joined the Independent Party and the opposition Freedom Party. In a series of events which unfolded by February 2017 saw big cabinet members join the Independent Party which eventually led to the Prime Minister joining the Independent Party on 19 February 2017. It was on the same day that the President recognized him as the leader of the single largest party in the parliament allowing him to remain in power until his resignation on 12 April 2017.
