Yes, the calculations on till recently going on guesses about reshuffling of central cabinet of ministers are over with several new faces inducted into it giving the total team an almost entirely a new look. Those inducted afresh including the newly promoted ones quite ritually reiterated their loyalty to the nation while taking oath. Some of the ministers till now in the saddle have been dropped, most of them in the name of using their services for the party work. This is the style of the politicians to say ‘no’ to some body whom they consider as ‘unwanted’ in the existing set up. There is nothing new in this pattern, it is rather an old practice. When Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, wanted to get rid of Morarji Desai as most dominantly powerful a minister in his cabinet, he introduced Kamraj Plan, which otherwise prescribed a proposal that all the ministers in the caninet should voluntarily quit paving the way for reshuffling it in much more desired a manner. This was the handle used against Morarji Desai, including of course a few more, to facilitate their smooth ouster instead of telling them a straight ‘no’ to any berth in the cabinet of ministers. Both of those promoted to higher rank and those inducted afresh are a category consisting of those who otherwise have a tainted image. The memory of the public is still fresh to remember how Salman Khurshid was involved in a fishy deal relating to his trust and, as if he deserved an incentive for his act as such, he is gifted with most important a portfolio of cabinet rank like that of external affairs. The Prime Minister conveniently, rather provocatively, chose to lend his deaf ears to the cry of the people in general against most ghastly a picture of corruption so rampant in the country.
