Have ‘no information' about cabinet reshuffle: Nitish Kumar
Ahead of NDA government's major reshuffle tomorrow in which JD (U) leaders are likely to be inducted, Nitish Kumar on Saturday said he had no information about it and came to know about the reshuffle only through the media.
"We have no information, no talks about it. We got information only from media," news agency ANI quoted the Bihar Chief Minister as saying when asked about cabinet reshuffle.
The big Modi Cabinet reshuffle will take place on Sunday. There are wild speculations all over as to who would make the cut and who would be cut off. Speculations are rife about major changes in the Cabinet which is likely to be the last ahead of the 2019 polls.
The JD(U), which joined the NDA recently, is likely to get two ministerial berths. The new faces likely to be inducted into the ministry are Vinay Sahasrabuddhe from Maharashtra, former Mumbai police commissioner Satypal Singh, Harish Dwivedi from Uttar Pradesh, Prahlad Joshi, Suresh Angadi and Shobha Karandlaje from Karnataka, Prabhat Jha, Rakesh Singh and Prahlad Patel from Madhya Pradesh, Ashwini Choubey from Bihar and Mahesh Giri from Delhi.
Among those likely to get a promotion are Piyush Goyal, Manoj Sinha, and Dharmendra Pradhan. Two JD(U) leaders, RCP Singh and Santosh Kumar, are tipped to be the party's nominees for ministerial positions at the Centre.
