After the resignation of Minister of Corporate Affairs , it is now almost certain that a Cabinet reshuffle will be held possibly on July 9 or 10, soon after President returns from her and Tirupati visit.

Among the ministers likely to be dropped are Subodh Kant Sahay (food processing), (external affairs), (law and justice), (small and medium industry) and B K Handique (north-east). Sushil Kumar Shinde (power) and (environment) could be moved out of their present departments. Oscar Fernandes and Milind Deora are said to be new entrants but the newest will be Anil Kakodkar, top nuclear theologian, and Ashok Ganguly, Rajya Sabha MP and educationist.

Shivraj Patil (currently governor of Punjab and Rajasthan) is also returning to the Cabinet, but exactly where, no one knows.

Anand Sharma (commerce & industry) is trying for the ministry of external affairs slot but “PMO would prefer an EAM who is not too strong”.
