Positive vs Negative: How Ministers Were Graded Before Cabinet Pink Slips

Modi Cabinet reshuffle narendra modi cabinet reshuffle modi cabinet narendra modi cabinet narendra modi nitin gadkari piyus goyal amit shah arun jaitley

When Prime Minister Narendra Modi undertakes the third cabinet reshuffle of his council of ministers on September 3, one issue which may be of interest to all is the number of members he will add to his team.

Republic TV has reported that Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis may get a Cabinet berth and sources said that he has agreed to the proposal.

A reshuffle in the cabinet has been due for months now. Science and Technology minister Harsh Vardhan was given the additional charge of the Environment Ministry. The excel sheet has the list of existing ministers of the Modi Cabinet, who have been marked P (indicating positive) and N (indicating negative) on the basis of their performance so far.

While ministers - Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Sanjiv Balyan, Faggan Singh Kulaste - have already tendered their reisgnations ahead of the expected realignment of Cabinet, others like Uma Bharti, Kalraj Mishra have also offered to step down. He later became the chief minister of the state.

The assembly elections in Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh next year could also play a factor in the choice of inductions made by the BJP regime. Thambidurai played a key role in the merger of AIADMK by being a facilitator between the Centre and party factions led by O. Panneerselvam and Edappadi K. Palaniswami. Serious discussions are ongoing regarding the reshuffle in the cabinet at the governmental and organisational level. At least two members of the JD (U) are also likely to join Cabinet. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley holds additional charge of Defence, but he has said he does not expect this arrangement to continue. As many as eight Union ministers visited him.

Lok Sabha deputy speaker Thambidurai is likely to be inducted as a cabinet minister if AIADMK decides to join NDA.

Performing ministers like Piyush Goyal, Dharmendra Pradhan, Nirmala Sitharaman, Manoj Sinha and Jitendra Singh - all Ministers of State with independent charge - are likely to be elevated to Cabinet rank.

"The Prime Minister and the party President has assessed the work of the ministers, and then have taken a call on some of them", a senior BJP leader close to the leadership told IANS on condition of anonymity.
