PM Modi to hold review meeting today: Will give suggestions on the functioning of the ministry; Departments of Union Ministers can be changed soon
The outline of the reshuffle in the Modi government's cabinet can be decided on Wednesday. A meeting of the Union Council of Ministers will be held at the Prime Minister's residence to review the work of the ministers. In the meeting, the ministers especially the ministers of independent charge and state will give a presentation of their work and PM Modi will review it. The PMO says that after the review, dinner has been kept at the PM's residence in the evening, in which the PM will give his suggestions regarding the working of different ministries.
This meeting of the Council of Ministers is very important in this regard, because after reviewing this work, there may be a possibility of a reshuffle in the Union Cabinet. In view of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the work of which ministry needs to be accelerated or which ministry is running weak, its listing will also be done. After this, if the PM considers it necessary, then there can be a reshuffle in the cabinet. The new budget is due in February.
The BJP office-bearers held meetings regarding the preparations for the assembly elections to be held in different states next year. The first state in-charge meeting was held. Then there was a meeting of all the General Secretaries. After this, there was a meeting of the leaders of the party front. Finally, the leaders involved in the three meetings discussed the issues that came up in the meeting.
If official sources are to be believed, two MPs of the Shinde faction may get a place in the cabinet. One of them can get the post of a minister while the other can get the post of minister of state. Apart from this, there is talk of adding some new faces as well. It is believed that this may be the last reshuffle before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Recently Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and RCP Singh resigned from the ministerial post, and since then the possibility of a new Modi cabinet was being expressed. Naqvi held the minority affairs portfolio while RCP Singh held the steel ministry. On July 6, Smriti Irani was given the additional charge of the minority affairs department while Jyotiraditya Scindia was given additional charge of the steel ministry.
