Why AIADMK is being kept out of the Modi Cabinet reshuffle

By Vicky

The AIADMK is being kept out of the Modi Cabinet reshuffle which is to take place on Sunday at 10 am. While there were expectations that at least two from the AIADMK may join the government, that is however unlikely to happen.


BJP sources tell OneIndia the issues within the AIADMK are not fully sorted out as yet. Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not want to take any chances until the entire issue is sorted out.

There is a likelihood that in the days to come Sasikala's nephew TTV Dinakaran may formalise ties with E Palanisami. Once that process is completed, then talks of the AIADMK formally joining the NDA would commence.

On the AIADMK front, BJP sources say that the issue was not discussed. Only inducting two JD(U) MLAs was discussed, the source also added.

BJP chief Amit Shah had met Lok Sabha deputy speaker M Thambidurai on Thursday after the latter had met the PM. But there was no discussion on the AIADMK joining at the Centre. As for Nitish Kumar, the JD(U) national executive committee had held a meeting on August 19 to endorse the party's entry into the NDA.
