Background: Much awaited reshuffle of Mrs. Gandhi's cabinet came about on Monday. Though she introduce nearly a dozen new faces, four Ministers were promoted to the cabinet rank, amongst them Mr. L.N. MISHRA, who has been aptly rewarded for bringing about a favourable balance of payments position for India----for the first time in the last two decades or so. With political situation worsening in Andhra, with demands for division of that Indian state, Mrs. Gandhi also introduced into her cabinet one of her faithful supporters from Andhra, Mr. RAGHURAMIAH.
