In the second term of the Narendra Modi government, the first expansion of his cabinet is going to take place. This cabinet expansion is scheduled to take place at the end of Sawan. Sawan is ending on August 3. Sources say that the cabinet expansion could take place in the second week of August. The BJP believes that the end of Sawan is an auspicious moment for cabinet expansion. It is noteworthy that Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with 57 ministers took the oath of office and secrecy again on 30 May 2019. According to the rules, only 15 percent of the total number of members of the Lok Sabha can be a cabinet. In this context, a total of 81 ministers can be appointed in the central government. There were a total of 70 ministers in the previous Modi government. Under these circumstances, it is believed that PM Modi can appoint at least 13 more new ministers.
Party sources say that in June, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met other bigwigs of the union, Krishnagopal, BJP national president JP Nadda and party organization general secretary BL Santosh on the issue in June. It is Krishnagopal who sees a synergy between the Sangh and the BJP. A BJP leader told that a list of BJP leader Nadda's team is ready. This will decide who will become a part of the government from the organization and who will return from the government to the organization. Its full blue print is ready.
Sources say that the party's national general secretaries Bhupendra Yadav, Anil Jain, Anil Bulani may be made ministers, while a Rajasthan minister may be removed. Eight cabinet ministers hold two to three ministries. In these circumstances, the workload of these ministers can be reduced somewhat. Jyotiraditya Scindia, who secured a seat in Rajya Sabha from Madhya Pradesh, may also find a place in the Modi cabinet.
It is being told that some experts can also be included in the cabinet on the lines of Foreign Minister S. Jayashankar. In view of the Bihar assembly elections in November, JDU can also be assigned a ministry in the government.
