New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is preparing to rejig his Council of Ministers on Thursday.

The Ashoka Hall at the Rashtrapati Bhavan is being readied for a ceremony at noon, followed by lunch for attending dignitaries.
Earlier, a high tea had been planned at the same venue for Thursday evening, which was to follow the Council’s meeting — ostensibly to review the performances of ministers — at 10:30 am.
With Uttar Pradesh elections due next year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to keep regional and caste balances in mind for his council of ministers.
