Team Modi 3.0 Finalized Ahead of Swearing-In

Team Modi 3.0 Finalized Ahead of Swearing-In

Hours before the swearing-in ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi convened a meeting with several NDA leaders, many of whom are anticipated to receive ministerial posts. BJP veterans and leaders from NDA allies, such as Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari, Nirmala Sitharaman, Dr. S. Jaishankar, Dharmendra Pradhan, Ashwini Vaishnaw, and Piyush Goyal, occupied the first row. Other notable attendees included BJP veteran Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Jyotiraditya Scindia, JDU leader Rajiv Ranjan Singh, HAM leader Jitan Ram Manjhi, RLD's Jayant Chaudhary, JDS leader HD Kumaraswamy, LJP (Ram Vilas) chief Chirag Paswan, and Jitin Prasada.

A key difference between Modi 2.0 and Modi 3.0 is that the BJP's numbers in the Lok Sabha have fallen below the majority mark, making it reliant on NDA allies to form the government. This shift necessitates accommodating allies in the council of ministers.

Sources indicate that N. Chandrababu Naidu's TDP and Nitish Kumar's JDU are likely to secure at least one cabinet berth and one Minister of State post each. These decisions emerged from an 11-hour marathon meeting at the Prime Minister's residence, attended by Amit Shah, BJP chief JP Nadda, and the party's national general secretary (organization) BL Santhosh.

Prime Minister Modi is set to take the oath of office at 7:15 pm today. Outgoing Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, and Roads and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari are expected to retain their portfolios. Nirmala Sitharaman and Dr. S. Jaishankar, both Rajya Sabha MPs, are also likely to retain their finance and external affairs portfolios, respectively.

Among the allies, Chirag Paswan of LJP (Ram Vilas), HD Kumaraswamy of JDS, Anupriya Patel of Apna Dal (Sonelal), Jayant Chaudhary of RLD, and Jitan Ram Manjhi of Hindustani Awam Morcha are likely to get ministerial roles. Eknath Shinde's Shiv Sena may be represented by Buldhana MP Prataprao Jadhav, and Ramdas Athawale, Rajya Sabha MP and chief of the Republic Party of India (A), is also set to become a minister.

Pralhad Joshi, former Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, and Madhya Pradesh leaders Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Jyotiraditya Scindia may also receive ministerial posts. BJP leaders from the Northeast, Sarbananda Sonowal and Kiren Rijiju, are expected to return as ministers, along with other potential names such as G. Kishan Reddy, Shobha Karandlaje, BL Verma, Bandi Sanjay Kumar, Nityanand Rai, and Giriraj Singh.

The BJP's tally of 240 seats, 32 short of the majority mark, has positioned Chandrababu Naidu and Nitish Kumar as significant power brokers. BJP sources, however, have stated that the crucial cabinet committee on security portfolios—Home, Defence, Finance, and External Affairs—will remain with the BJP. TDP and JDU, which won 16 and 12 seats respectively, have demanded prominent central roles. The announcement of Prime Minister Modi's new team will reveal if their demands have been met. From the JDU, Rajiv Ranjan Singh and Rajya Sabha MP Ram Nath Thakur may get ministerial posts, while TDP MPs Dr. Chandra Sekhar Pemmasani and Ram Mohan Naidu Kinjarapu are also expected to receive positions.
