Rajnath Singh and Amit Shah expected to remain; ML Khattar and Bommai considered

PTC News Desk: Rajnath Singh and Amit Shah, two of the top ministers in the departing Narendra Modi cabinet, are expected to stay in place in Modi 3.0. sources said that ML Khattar, the former chief minister of Haryana, and Basvaraj Bommai, the former chief minister of Karnataka, have received demands for their installation as ministers.

Nirmala Sitharaman, Nitin Gadkari, Piyush Goyal, Pralhad Joshi, Arjun Meghwal, Rao Inderjit, Jyotiraditya Scindia, and Jitender Singh are among the previous ministers who are most likely to be kept on.


Raksha Khadse of Maharashtra and MP Kamaljit Shehrawat of North West Delhi are two new names that have surfaced.

According to a source, Ravneet Bittu, who was defeated by the Congress in Ludhiana, might also be included. In addition, BJP leader K Annamalai of Tamil Nadu can be appointed as a minister as a result of his state mobilisation efforts, even though the party failed to secure any seats.

The invitation to tea with Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi at his home at roughly 11.30 am, according to sources, will be a clear indicator of who gets appointed as a minister.

According to sources, Jaishankar, Shah, and Rajnath will probably continue in their respective portfolios.

It's likely that Ashwini Vaishnaw and Hardeep Puri will serve as ministers again. It is anticipated that JP Nadda would be admitted to the Union cabinet. According to a Tribune story from today, all party presidents receive ministerial positions after serving as the head of the party. June marks the conclusion of Nadda's tenure as BJP leader.
