Finishing touches to Modi’s Cabinet reshuffle

June 12 2016

“Bahut sun tey thhey shor-e-dil ka, par ye to qatra-e-khoon nikla”. Speculation about a Cabinet reshuffle in Modi’s government has been doing the rounds for a long time. It is also being said this reshuffle is going to be a significant one. The sources, however, say it is going to be a regular one where empty seats will be filled up. There is talk that in light of the possible Assembly elections in Odisha, Petroleum Minister for State Dharmendra Pradhan might be made the state head and sent to his home state. Something similar might happen to Steel Minister Narendra Singh Tomar; to prepare him as an alternative to Shivraj, he might be given a prime responsibility in the party. From UP, those such as Yogi Adityanath might be included in the Cabinet, and considering the elections in Punjab, Navjot Singh Siddhu might be made the sports minister at the Centre. Vijay Sampla has already been made the BJP head in Punjab, and it seems his farewell from the Central ministry is more or less final. After becoming the chief minister of Assam, Sarvanand Sonowal has given his resignation from the Cabinet, and so has Danve Patil, who was made the Maharashtra BJP head. BJP’s National Working Committee’s meeting is due to take place on June 12-13, after which the Modi Cabinet might see a reshuffle. It is believed that the stature of Piyush Goyal and Manoj Sinha will be increased, and several non-performing ministers will be removed, and put to serving the organization. But this is all speculation – what will happen is what Narendra Modi wills.
