Modi’s Cabinet reshuffle in May?

April 12 2015

Prime Minister Narendra Modi may do reshuffle-cum-expansion in his cabinet anytime soon after May 13. For quite some time, a core team of Modi has been busy giving finishing touches to the ministers’ report cards. It is learnt that the Prime Minister is keen to dispel the image of his government victim of inertia. It is possible, thus, that soon after end of Parliament session on May 13th, a big exercise will be carried out to improve the shape and face of the government. Several heavyweight ministers will see their stature being cut to size, several will be shifted to other departments, and several may be eased out of the Cabinet. Making age and work capabilities as a base, some ministers may be relieved for party work. A meeting in this regard between Modi and the Sangh has already taken place. It is believed that the Sangh leadership has made it clear that effecting changes in the cabinet is the prerogative of the Prime minister. However, the Sangh leadership wants to have HRD minister of their choice. This means that preparations are on to change Smriti Irani’s department; there is speculation that a heavyweight favoured by the Sangh, Rajnath Singh for instance, will be given the responsibility. If that happens, Arun Jaitley may be given home ministry. In any case, speculation has also been rife for the past several days that the prime minister wants to give finance ministry to someone who is his confidante to further speed up economic reforms.

    We welcome the gossip that AJ is relieved of FM..Along with this, he should be stripped off of the I&B ministry also, which action will be good for BJP. Who ever be the new FM is, he should look into NDTV tax frauds and investigate and to punish, if found true, in a suitable time period.
