    It's evident that, NaMo will be our PM.

    Now, who according to you will get Top posts in NaMo govt?

    My Guesses are...

    L.K. Advani - Nothing?

    Arun Jaitley - Finance or External Affairs

    Rajnath Singh - Home or Defence

    Arun Shouri - Finance or External Affairs

    Sushma Swaraj - External Affairs or Defence?

    Anant Kumar- Information and Broadcasting

    Murli Manohar Joshi - Nothing?

    Amit Shah - Home?

    Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi - ?

    Uma Bharathi - ?

    Nitin Gadkari - Railways?

    Ravi Shankar Prasad - ?

    Dr. Harsh Vardhan - Health

    Menaka Gandhi - ?

    Varun Gandhi - Minister of State

    We need a very competent petson in the environment ministry as this has great relevance to industrialisation. Protection of ecology & environment but not at the cost of halting growth and economic development.

    For arguments sake, let's say he gets that post, what will be the fate of Gen. Dalbir Suhag?

    Well, since a decision has already been taken, I suppose he will have to live with it. But I know it is unlikely. Indian Political parties don't like officers butting in.

    I second that, but the other BJP members will go crazy if this post is not given to them.

    I hope they consider national interest of over such things. I dont think for a man like Gen VKS's stature, he will accept any junior ministry. And he certainly cant cant take up any other important ministry other than defence.

    If Defense goes to Sushma then VK would be Cultural Minister? :lol:

    Inside as in just the ruling party, or a ministerial post? I didnt see him get one, cause he is a kind of a loose cannon, and might fall in line if the govt needs it.

    Extremely bad idea. Put her somewhere she can do the least damage to NM's revival of the economy.

    Social Justice and Empowerment, or Minister for Animal Welfare, or Culture.



    By the way, how many ministries and departments will PM Modi keep with himself??

    In this case I don't see projects getting clearance from her ministry. We don't need another J. Natarajan in saffron.
    Give her women & child development.

    I am informed that I&B may go to Smriti Irani. She will be rewarded for her commendable effort agaist Rahul G. She might have even won if her candidature had been announced a few months earlier.

    As for Gen VK Singh, he is not a senior member of the party to deserve any of the "Big Four" portfolios.

    Shahnawaz Hussain and Rajiv Pratap Rudy may also get cabinet this time.

    Defense must go to someone who knows about defense .... not a politician who will take ten years to understand that his IAS secretaries have been fooling him and scaring him of the " Coup" .... ??

    Nahin ??

    Perhaps. As in the case of AK Anthony - absolutely. But then the dynamics of politics is different. Pethaps he may be given such an assignment in an advisory role? The top 4 slots is definitely out of reach for now including the CCS. He may have to settle for MoS Defence if at all.
    He may have been army chief but in politics he has a senior even in Maj Gen BC Khanduri who is now a very seasoned politician. In any case all major decisions in national interest be it foreign affairs or defence/war is political. Modi will make the call.

    Ministry of Defence could go to Sushma Swaraj, with VK Singh being MoS Defence. If not for SS' seniority and her clamour for a top-5 ministry, VK Singh would have been Raksha Mantri.

    It's good that VK is being given MoS and not Union Minister's title, because MoS usually gets to micro-manage procurements and indigenous development.
