    Modi will have to do a tightrope walk in his 3rd outing

    Allies eying plum posts, including home ministry

    Modi govt unlikely to relent, to retain main portfolios

The results of Lok Sabha elections 2024 were an anti-climax! With all exit polls pointing at a potential Modi 3.0, the BJP did not even secure the passing mark of 272. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had never tasted defeat in the way he has done now, will be heading a coalition government, backed by Nitish Kumar and Chandrababu Naidu.

Let’s also remember that he has been backed by the JD(S) in Karnataka. Now, even as he takes oath, he faces a lot of problems, with allies seeking plum portfolios. 

Indeed, hectic parlaying is going on. 

And if reports are to be believed, JD(U) is  Railways, Rural Development, Jal Shakti, Transport and Agriculture ministries. 

On the other hand, the TDP has demanded five ministerial berths, including a MoS post for Finance. 

It is also being speculated that it also wants Roads, Panchayati Raj, Health and Education. 

Moving to others, the Eknath Shinde faction wants one Cabinet and two MoS berths in the Modi government.

Interestingly, Chirag Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party(Ram Vilas) is eying the Railways ministry. His party, which won all five Lok Sabha seats it contested in Bihar, has been promised one position in the Union Cabinet and might also get a MoS post. 

Coming down to South, JD(S)’ HD Kumaraswamy has openly declared that he wants the union agriculture ministry as he is interested in it. 

What is the BJP’s reaction? 

Though the party is likely to accommodate the requests, it is expected to deal with an iron hand when it comes to ministries like Railways, Home, Finance, Defence, Law and Information Technology (IT) and External Affairs. 

But as of now, these are mere speculations. The final call will take place later.
