Bengaluru, Jan 18: The BJP high command, which had signalled that the ministry reorganization exercise is not on the cards immediately because of Covid and other issues, has now conveyed the message asking the concerned to be in readiness for such an exercise. This has aroused a lot of curiosity, and the rumours indicate that five to six ministers may be dropped.
The centre had postponed the revamp of the ministry in the light of election in five states as the top leadership is busy with finalizing the names of the candidates, particularly in Uttar Pradesh. It is said that the state BJP unit as well as the chief minister have received a communique from the top leadership, asking to send a list of probables.
The center plans to undertake major surgery of the ministry and draw five to six ministers exclusively for election work and party organization. It is also in favour of filling the remaining four vacant seats. The process of filling the seats is getting postponed frequently for one or the other reason. The exercise would have got a kick-start at the party's meeting which was planned at a resort in Nandi Hills earlier this month, but because of Covid situation it was postponed. This meeting was envisaged to discuss preparing the party for the next election, and to give suggestions towards better administration.
Before the next assembly election, Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike election, zilla panchayat and taluk panchayat elections are scheduled to be held. As this is an election year, some senior leaders are planned to be drawn to devote their entire time for organizing the party. The party is said to be thinking of giving ministerial positions to young, enthusiastic leaders who will be eager to work with zeal and prove their mettle. As the new ministers have only one year to prove themselves before the next election, younger ministers may be able to improve the image of the government in a better way, the centre feels.
