Modi Cabinet reshuffle: When attendance and performance matters
One could expect at least a dozen changes in the Union Cabinet reshuffle. While some ministers will be moved keeping in mind party work, others have been asked to leave based on their performances.
On Friday several ministers including Rajiv Pratap Rudy tendered their resignations. Senior BJP minister Uma Bharti too offered to resign on health grounds. This will be the last Modi Cabinet reshuffle head of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Some of the key factors that both Prime Minister Narendra Mod and BJP national president Amit Shah kept in mind was performance and attendance. Those ministers who have had low attendance in Parliament have been shown the door.
On the performance front too various decisions were taken. The report cards of all performing ministers have been analysed and under-performers have been asked to leave. At least 6 out of the 12 ministers are likely to go due to performance, sources also indicated.
The much anticipated rejig is scheduled for September 2. There would be at least 12 changes and both Defence and environment will have new faces. Ministers such as Piyush Goyal, Prakash Javadekar and Dharmendra Pradhann are likely to get a promotion, sources said.
