PM Narendra Modi to reshuffle cabinet ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections


Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to render a transformational face to the entire Union Cabinet  soon. Rumours are abuzz that there will be major reshuffling in the Union Cabinet.

The reshuffling is most likely to happen on April 12, when the Parliament session is slated to happen.

As a matter of fact, Finance minister Arun Jaitley was given an additional charge of the defence portfolio. This was a result when the erstwhile Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar presented his resignation.

“This is a classical situation of role conflict,” said a senior government source.

As per Sources, new faces will be forayed in the cabinet. Reports also suggest that new faces will be introduced in the cabinet.

This move is driven by securing an even stronger mandate in the 2019 elections. The man himself will integrate required changes in the cabinet, so that work is allocated to effective and specialists.

Key ministries will be helmed by experienced ministers who have already endured ample amount of experience and are super fit for the post.

Modi also made a major revamp to his Cabinet in July last year. HRD minister Smriti Irani was shifted to textiles, while Venkaiah Naidu was granted the post of information and broadcasting portfolio, who was primarily handled by Jaitley. Sadananda Gowda was moved to the statistics ministry from law. The minister of state for external affairs was given to exceptional journalist M J Akbar.

The opposition tagged this as a ‘Vote-garnering’ exercise, which was infact a formidable method to buttress the Union Cabinet decisions and efficiency. However, the opposition seemed to comprehend it as a move to collect vote banks across the country.

We wish Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi great luck in this endeavour which has the potential to change India  for the better.
