There is speculation that a few more ministers are on their way out, on the basis of a detailed performance review by the PM and top leaders over the past few weeks.

Among likely names up for elevation are Anurag Thakur, Purshottam Rupala and GK Reddy. All three were seen arriving at PM Modi’s residence along with would-be ministers expected to be sworn in later today.

Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sarbananda Sonowal, Narayan Rane, Bhupendra Yadav and Meenakshi Lekhi are set to join the government. They were among ministers-to-be who visited PM Modi’s residence ahead of the revamp.

This is the first revamp of the Council of Ministers since PM Modi started his second term in May 2019.
