Ahead of assembly elections in three states and organisational elections next year, the much awaited reshuffle in the AICC is expected later this month.

Indicating that 'one-person-one-post' formula would be followed in the exercise, sources in the party said that changes will be brought in the organisation along with a reshuffle in work allocation in the AICC.

"It (changes) could be done during the ongoing Budget session of Parliament," a senior party leader said.

While Maharashtra will have assembly elections by October, Jharkhand and Haryana will go to polls by February next year. The organisational elections of the party are also scheduled to be completed by December, next year.

Almost one-and-a-half months ago, AICC General Secretary Janardan Dwivedi had said that "changes will be brought in the organisation soon," without indicating the dates.

The party indicated that effort will be made to see that those who work in the government concentrate on it and those who work in the party do organisational work.

Four AICC general secretaries were inducted into the Manmohan Singh Cabinet leaving a void in the organisation as these ministers hardly find time to concentrate on party work.

While general secretaries Ghulam Nabi Azad and Mukul Wasnik were inducted as cabinet ministers, Prithviraj Chavan was inducted as Minister of State with Independent charge and V Narayanasami as Minister of state.
