Why was the Cabinet expansion postponed by two days?

October 30 2012

The Manmohan Singh Cabinet expansion that happened today was supposed to take place on October 26 after Dusshera. The formal permission from the President had also been sought for the same. But keeping in mind the visit by the King of Spain, this reshuffle was postponed for October 28. And because the President’s guards were in service to the Spanish king, they didn’t get time to either change their clothes or rest a bit. And whenever new ministers take oath at Ashok Hall, these same guards have the responsibility to take the guest to Ashok Hall, Thus, the postponement he Cabinet expansion was only because of the President’s guards.
