Buzz around Cabinet expansion as PM, Shah meet MPs, ministers

New Delhi, June 15

Over the past week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been holding in-person meetings with Union ministers to take stock of the work done by the government in the past two years and discuss various issues, setting abuzz speculations about the reshuffle of his Cabinet. He also met senior ministers, including Rajnath Singh and Nitin Gadkari, along with BJP president JP Nadda, on Monday.

Meanwhile, Home Minister Amit Shah also met MPs from UP, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, and Gujarat, and other states over the weekend. While speculations are rife over the possibility of a Cabinet reshuffle “any time soon”, sources claimed PM Modi and Shah have only been taking daily updates on the Covid situation and discussing the implementation of various central schemes in individual constituencies.

“PM Modi and senior ministers have held regular meetings with BJP MPs to get feedback on various issues before the global pandemic hit the country. With corona cases ebbing, such physical meetings have again started taking place,” they said.


“Nadda has been holding meetings with leaders of BJP ruled states, where elections are scheduled. Shah too is participating in strategy meetings for poll preparations. The meetings with MPs and ministers are regarding the situation in individual constituencies and grievances of the people and part of the ongoing feedback exercise regarding the central schemes and the Covid situation,” they insisted
