Games in power corridors

June 22 2010

The buzz about a reshuffle at the Cabinet level is getting louder, and there is a probability of it happening before the monsoon session of the Parliament commences. There are signs of Ajay Maken and G K Vasan returning back to the Congress fold. Ajay might become the spokesperson for the Delhi constituency and Vasan might head the Tamil Nadu Congress. While some minister might be dropped, a few fresh faces may be seen, too. B K Handique might get a new portfolio, one that takes him down a few notches. Farookh Abdulla’s displeasure with his portfolio is common news and he is bent upon wanting to change it to either Kashmir affairs or Tourism; the matter might settle for the Tourism portfolio. That’s because the UPA government has made it clear to him that there is no way he is getting the Kashmir affairs portfolio and Abdullah might have to please himself with Tourism. The state post under Foreign Ministry S M Krishna is vacant, one that was once occupied by Shashi Tharoor. Jyotiraje Scindia and Sachina Pilot are said to be hankering for it and one of the two might get it.
