PM Modi’s Cabinet reshuffles today along with discussions about developments

0

On Wednesday, the Narendra Modi government is set to restructure the Union Cabinet, bringing in some new faces and accommodating National Democratic Alliance allies (NDA). The inauguration of new ministers is expected to take place today at 6 p.m.

Meetings between Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Jagat Prakash Nadda on Tuesday sparked speculation about a cabinet overhaul.

A slew of BJP leaders and allies came to Delhi, raising the possibility of their membership in the government. Jyotiraditya Scindia, former Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, and former Maharashtra chief minister Narayan Rane are among these leaders.

Scindia, who left the Congress in March last year to join the BJP, was seen praying at Ujjain’s iconic Mahakal temple before departing for Delhi.

The Janata Dal (United), Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), and Apna Dal are poised to join the Union Cabinet as allies. Despite the fact that Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar has been tight-lipped about the number of berths his party will receive, rumours suggest that JD(U) chief RCP Singh is on his way to Delhi. Chirag Paswan, who is fighting his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras for control of the LJP, has indicated that if the latter is accommodated, he will go to court.

The process began on Tuesday with the appointment of four new governors and the reassignment of four others. This will be the first cabinet reshuffle since the Modi government took office in 2019.

The overhaul is being done in anticipation of next year’s assembly elections in various states; the BJP also wants to dispel the perception that it is incapable of working with allies. PM Modi has met with his ministers and chief ministers of poll-bound states including Uttar Pradesh’s Yogi Adityanath multiple times in recent weeks.

The Modi government now has 53 ministers, with the potential to increase to 81, or 15% of the Lok Sabha’s total membership of 545 MPs.
