Discussions were hot in the political circles for the last several days that in the third week of January, the final reshuffle in the cabinet of the Modi government would take place. but that did not happen. Now the buzz is gaining momentum that the cabinet reshuffle will happen in the second week of February, when the first phase of the budget session will end. It means that the heartbeat of all the people who are expecting to get entry in the cabinet and are likely to be discharged from there will be more intense for the next few days. By the way, according to the sources, these days there is a lot of indecisiveness regarding the two contenders. The Eknath Shinde faction in Maharashtra is not only demanding its share in the possible reshuffle, but also wants a key ministry. He believes that since 2024 will be an election year, the BJP needs him. In such a situation, before the general elections, BJP will not take the risk of ignoring their demands.
Chirag Paswan also has a similar desire in Bihar. He also wants a good ministry for himself in the cabinet. If he gets a place in the cabinet, it will also be his formal return to the NDA. Like the Shinde faction, Chirag also believes that the BJP is in dire need of an ally in Bihar, due to which he cannot be ignored. But the hitch here is that his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras is already in the central government, and the BJP is not in favor of giving place to both uncle and nephew in the government.
worry about trouble
In the past, two states were fighting with each other over the border, so now there is a fight between the two states regarding wrestling. The issue started with the sit-in-demonstration of the top wrestlers of the country, but later on seeing the issue of caste to state, BJP’s concern started increasing. His concern was valid. The sports officer against whom the protest was held is not only a BJP MP, but is also considered a strong leader of Uttar Pradesh. Most of the players sitting on dharna against him were from Haryana. While leaders of all parties were aggressively expressing support for these wrestlers in Haryana, BJP leaders in Uttar Pradesh kept mum on the issue. When the matter increased, some people also publicized this issue as a clash between two castes. A trend related to this also started on Twitter. This too was going to worry the BJP.
Therefore, BJP asked its MP Brij Bhushan Singh to publicly give a statement rejecting the angle of caste or state conflict. Along with this, he also expressed his displeasure over the statements made by some of his leaders on this issue. The BJP was treading lightly on this issue. Eventually the strike ended and the party got relief. A leader of the party told that if this issue escalated further, there could have been trouble in the international world as well. Its political loss could also have to be borne.
Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari suddenly expressed his desire to step down from his post two days ago. He said this by tweeting in a very unusual way. He also added that he had told this to PM Modi during his visit to Mumbai. But according to political circles, after his controversial statement in the recent past, he was given a respectable farewell message. Recently, after his statement on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, BJP also had to come on backfoot in Maharashtra. By the way, this is not the first time, Koshyari, a BJP leader from Uttarakhand, has been involved in controversies on many issues in the past as well.
growing distance between siblings
In Telangana, on the one hand, KCR is constantly making tall claims to take his party to the national level, while on the other hand, the rift within his family is keeping him worried. The kind of news coming from inside the family tells that the distance between KCR’s son KTR and his daughter Kavita Rao is increasing continuously. However, there is a clear division of work between the two. If KTR sees the state activities of the party and the work within the state government, then Kavita is the monitor of the national activities of the party. Despite this, the growing distance between the two is clearly visible on many occasions.
Both have not been seen together in any major platform or program of the party for the last several days. When BJP took the name of TRS MP Kavita Rao in the liquor scam of Delhi, even then she was not defended by the party. In this case, many allegations were leveled against Kavita Rao citing the ED case. But Kavita aggressively faced these allegations and increased her strength within the party. Since then, she has also started appearing closer to her father.
new excitement in the east
According to the fixed schedule so far, assembly elections are to be held in 9 states before the 2024 general elections. But now it seems that the number of one state may increase in this. Assembly elections in this important state of Northeast India may be held ahead of time. In fact, the CM of this state and his party have an assessment that if elections are held ahead of time, they will get the benefit not only in the assembly elections, but also in the general elections. Now he has started making his preparations accordingly and has asked the organization to be ready for the early elections. According to the assessment of this regional party, if elections are held simultaneously, then there will be success in the assembly elections after a mild struggle, but there may be a big loss in the Lok Sabha seats. He may soon give a big hint about the successor within his party. Overall, this eastern state, which is generally politically calm, may see political turmoil very soon.
