Live Updates on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Cabinet Reshuffle: The BJP is anticipated to give coalition partners greater room in the Council of Ministers, resulting in a reshuffle that will likely see numerous new faces.
Labor Minister Santosh Gangwar, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal, and Minister of State for Women and Child Development Ministry Debasree Chaudhuri all resigned ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Union Cabinet reshuffle on Wednesday evening.
Several new faces are anticipated to join the expansion, as the BJP is poised to give coalition partners greater room in the Council of Ministers. Though the BJP’s Sarbananda Sonowal, Jyotiraditya Scindia, and Narayan Rane have arrived in Delhi, there is no formal confirmation of the reshuffle.
JD(U) leaders Lalan Singh and RCP Singh, R K Ranjan Singh (Manipur BJP), Shantanu Thakur (West Bengal), Hina Gavit (Maharashtra), and A Narayanaswamy (Karnataka) are among those allegedly summoned to the capital, according to The Indian Express. Apna Dal and LJP, both BJP allies, are anticipated to be represented.
Moreover, the setting up of a new Ministry to “strengthen” the co-operative movement, the appointment of four new Governors, and the transfer of four others Tuesday, has set the stage for the much-anticipated expansion of the Union Council of Ministers.
