There are reports that BJP state president L Murugan will be given a chance as the Union Cabinet is being expanded.

The BJP government headed by Prime Minister Modi took office for the second time in May 2019.  This BJP cabinet has been allotted more than two portfolios per cabinet minister, which is unprecedented. 

For example, Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar is the Minister for Agriculture, Rural Development, Panchayat Raj and Food Security.  Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasanth is the Minister for Law and Justice, Telecommunications and Information Technology.

Similarly, Harshavardhan, Pius Goyal and Prakash Joshi are the ministers for the three departments.  Similarly, after the resignation of Harshimrat Kaur of the Akali Dal party, who was the Union Agriculture Minister, all the ministers are from the BJP.  Coalition parties remain under-represented.

 Therefore, it was expected that the Union Cabinet would be expanded on a large scale.  There have been reports in the media that the Union Cabinet is being expanded over the past one month.  The governors’ appointment was made yesterday to confirm it.  In this context, the new Union Ministers are expected to take office at 6 pm today.

  It is expected that 43 new and existing ministers will take office today.  In today’s inaugural cabinet, it has been reported that SC, ST, OBC and women will be adequately represented.

There are reports that the current BJP leader L Murugan will be given a seat in the Union Cabinet.

Jyotiraditya scindia, a prominent Congress leader, joined the BJP in March 2019.  However, he was not given a place in the Union Cabinet.  Therefore, it seems likely that Cynthia, Sarpanch Sona and Bhupendra Yadav will be accommodated in the current Union Cabinet expansion.

Similarly, while the BJP is actively trying to gain a foothold in Tamil Nadu, those from Tamil Nadu are not being represented in the Union Cabinet.  So, on that basis, there are reports that the current BJP leader L Murugan will be given a seat in the Union Cabinet.

  Also, if he is a member of the SC community and is given a place in the cabinet, the two features of a cabinet member from Tamil Nadu and a place for a SC community representative will be fulfilled.

 Although Union Ministers Nirmala Sitharaman and Jaisankar are from Tamil Nadu, they are not directly involved in Tamil Nadu politics.  Therefore, they are unfamiliar with the people of Tamil Nadu.

  It is expected that L. Murugan will be given the post of Union Minister 20 years after forming an alliance with the AIADMK, as the BJP has won representation in the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly.
