There will be a Cabinet reshuffle, Amit Shah confirms

29cabinetNew Delhi: There will be a reshuffle in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet, confirmed BJP chief Amit Shah today, but refused to say when.

“There will be a reshuffle, but a date is not certain,” Shah said at a press conference at the party’s Delhi headquarters.

There has been speculation for some time now about major changes in the union cabinet, which was fueled by an hour long meeting that Prime Minister Modi held with Shah last week.

With the BJP focused on the crucial Uttar Pradesh elections to be held early next year, more leaders from the state are expected to be given place in the Modi cabinet. Shah is also expected to announce a new team of party office-bearers and recast the BJP’s decision-making bodies and that will impact the contours of the cabinet, since the ruling party favours only one post per person.
