Cabinet reshuffle predictions

It is almost certain that the Union Cabinet reshuffle would take place on Sunday morning, October 28 amid rumors that the discussions of the UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh have been completed.

With only 2 days away from the expected cabinet reshuffle and the rumors that SM Krishna would be eased out of the cabinet, SM Krishna has resigned today making more room for fresh faces in the cabinet.

It is not known whether or not Rahul Gandhi is assuming a larger role in the government after this reshuffle. Sources say Jyotiraditya Scindia and Sachin Pilot are among those likely to be elevated. Coal minister Sriprakash Jaiswal and other similar ministers who have been involved in the recent scams that have been unearthed would likely be replaced in the reshuffle.
