Cabinet all set for expansion, OBCs may get chunk of berths
NEW DELHI: A major reshuffle of the Union council of ministers, which will have a significant OBC imprint, is on the cards. The exercise also aims to increase women representation, bring in state leaders with strong administrative experience, reduce the average age of the ministry and induct people with professional background.
The exercise, helmed by PM Modi who has held detailed consultations, looks to strike a bnce within caste and regional categories. The OBC sions are expected to ensure smaller communities are not left out with the tally of “backward” leaders expected to reach around 25 — from a little over a dozen at present. Similarly, attention will be paid to sub-regional cms within bigger states like UP, Maharashtra, Gujarat or Karnataka.
Sources said the first expansion of Modi 2.0 has been scheduled for 6 pm on Wednesday, but the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Tuesday night was yet to receive an offi al communication from the Cabinet Secretariat.
The OBC presence seems set for a big jump, and the move to woo this po itically influential and populous section seems intended to further consolidate the support it has offered BJP, hel it emerge as the premier po itical in the country.
Modi too following the foot steps of congress . Not the capability but the caste decide the ministerial birth......
Does Modi think his ministry fell shortage of jokers that's why this arrangement?
Instead of looking in to their qualifications if still caste is the criteria then we are going wrong way
BJP is no different then Congress.
Give seats to the deserved ones you moron. Not to OBCs or brahmins
Even pakistanis would have been invited to cabinet if they could bring ves for this shameless pm.
Quota sy em will ruin the country .

brothers and sisters don't make any bad comments ag inst center..If you do so..sedition charges ,CBI and other agency will follow you .
Unfortunately every plays the cast card. Really disgusting.
Feku id panauti. throw feku out of India
What is the use of expansion, PM Modi does not consult the ministers’ neither the ministers’ have any empowerment.
In India capabilities don't matter at all. It is better for people who believe in capabilities to leave and settle somewhere. India is a backward country a and will remain backward forever. Just imagine when teachers are sed based on caste how do you expect to go forward?
One can even blindly say his also will face the same fate as that of Cong very soon if Modi never realises his commitment to the people of India.
Modi has already pushed the reputation of the greater country at bottom.
Please resign and leave for the sake of our country. Nobody trust you
Modi govt knows to put tax burden on people.
Caste Caste Caste... Can't we never get over it. Even after 70 years of Republic, people are categorised as BACKWARD just based on their caste, then it's a real shame for us.
Bjp playing caste po itics like any other .
I think bjp is becoming too little and too ch mindset. If you think caste, communal and language is going to make you win the ion, then you are living in fools paradise. Its going to be hard lesson for BJP.
Modi has not just let down India but also the entire world.
Young Indians should create a new po itical .A that has nothing to do with re gion,caste sy em,color &; language .A that focuses on Development of India.
