Modi’s Cabinet: A guess

Narendra-Modi-Cabinet-2014-if-BJP-comes-to-PowerCabinet formation is a highly complex task. Narendra Modi has the most difficult job at hand. In realizing his promises to the people, the Modi government must have corruption free and efficient people in the cabinet. But some of the big wigs cannot be dropped. They should be given vital portfolios and must be kept under constant watch. Regional, religious, gender and caste representations are must to balance the social equation. L.K.Advani can be kept for Rshastrapathi bhavan. M.M.Joshi can be accommodated at the moment as HRD minister as there is a big lack of such a person now in NDA. Yashwant Sinha for external affairs is also in the same category. These senior citizens of the party may find it difficult to function as the new guards will command the complete control over the government. Nevertheless they cannot be ignored at the moment. Uma Bharathi, Vinay Katiyar, must be put in for organization work because they never like to stay at one place permanently. The role of Harshavardhan is little shaky because of his prime position in the Delhi state. Otherwise he can be taken as the health minister. Maneka Gandhi would like to see his son Feroze Varun Gandhi to be in the cabinet. In case, she wants a position, women and child development can be given. Environment & forests which is the dear most for Maneka will face obstacles if such an extreme eco savior occupies the post. Old guards like Kalyan Singh must be dispatched as governors. There should not be any place for bureaucratic people like Arun Shourie, Subramaniam Swamy and Ram Jethmalani. If Modi wants these best friends of him to be given some honour, they must be accommodated as advisors but not as ministers. Najma Heptatullah can be the speaker. In case M.M.Joshi is accommodated as the speaker, Dr.Najma can be inducted as the HRD minister. The following list of cabinet ministers is mostly from the BJP.  Some of the NDA allies need to be accommodated for which some from BJP may have vacate their space. There must be a serious of pruning of some unwanted ministries like disinvestment, minority affairs etc. This will pay way for the minimum government and maximum governance. A regular meeting to check the performance of the cabinet must be held. If Modi performs well and meet the expectations of his voters then NDA will be here for a longer stay.
