After being sworn PM for the third consecutive term PM Narendra Modi will  form his cabinet.

If not all, names of several new important incumbents with an eye on cabinet berths are likely to be announced. Three time parliamentarian Telegu desam Party leader  Kinjarapu Rammohan Naidu in all probabilities is set to be included in the cabinet, says an HT report.

According to this report TDP is anticipating to get one cabinet minister’s post along with two ministers of state ( MoS) in the Modi cabinet.

However, if sources are correct the party had been wanting one more cabinet ministers post. Meanwhile, sources, said TDP leader Chandrababu Naidu’s son is batting for muslim reservation… social justice not appeasement.

Meanwhile, section of the press reported that TDP and JDU are focused on securing financial packages for their regions, Andhra Pradesh and Bihar rather than securing ministerial berhs.

Howeve, sources said TD leader Chandrababu Naidu has not spoken anything about his talks with PM Modi regarding his place in the new cabinent likely to be sworn in  Sunday evening.

However PM Modi has indicated that around one third of the new cabinet members will be from allied parties.

In terms of numbers Nitish Kumar’s Janta Dal (United) with 12 MPs comes next.

Sources say, it all depends on what Nitish Kumar wants as he is also the president of his party this time.

Chirag Paswan, leader Lok Janshakti party has five MPs but he has not put forth any demand. However, he is likely to get a cabinet berth.

The arithmetic is clear  PM Modi is bound this time to give cabinet and ministerial berths to TDP and JDU this time to maintain harmony, balance and smooth functioning.

Rest, remains to be seen how the partners will behave in future and how far PM Modi will succeed in keeping the flock together.
