What is Modi's 4P formula that guided the Cabinet reshuffle
In the Modi Cabinet reshuffle, a new formula will be adopted. It is called the 4P formula. While performance, attendance and electoral considerations were part of the decision making process, the 4P formula too was taken into account.
The 4P formula stands for- Passion, Performance, Professional and political acumen. These are key factors taken into account during the reshuffle and also the induction of new faces into the Union Council of Ministers.
Keeping this in mind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has picked former Mumbai top cop, Satyapal Singh, former diplomat, Hardeep Puri, retired IAS officer Alphons Kannanthanam and former home secretary R K Singh. There are five more new faces who will be inducted into the ministry.
Hardeep Puri comes with years of experience in foreign policy. He is a decorated IFS officer and has experience of nearly four decades in foreign policy. Former Mumbai Police Commissioner, Satyapal Singh has ages of experience in policing. He has dealt with crime syndicates with an iron fist and in the Modi cabinet he could provide key inputs on law and order.
Alphons Kannanthanam will be the first from Kerala to find a place in the Modi ministry. He is popularly known as Delhi's demolition man when when he was the commissioner of the Delhi Development Authority. R K Singh on the other hand is an experienced bureaucrat who has handled various portfolios while in service. He was the Defence Production Secretary, Joint Secretary Home among others.
In the appointment of these four experienced persons, Modi would hope that his dream of a New India could be achieved. These would also bring to the government their years of experience.
