NEW DELHI: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said that the Congress is going through a serious crisis and a mere reshuffle in the Cabinet will not help the ruling party.

"The issue with the government is of governance. This kind of window dressing will not help much," BJP's Chief National Spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

The Congress is set for a major reshuffle with several senior ministers writing to party President Sonia Gandhi saying they want to be relieved of their portfolios and work for the party.

The ministers include Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh, Health and Family Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, Law & Justice and Minority Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid and Overseas Indian Affairs Minister Vyalar Ravi want to be relieved of their portfolios.
