Modi cabinet rejig on cards, Shah cancels visit 21.8.2017 Deccan Herald - News
BJP president Amit Shah's last minute cancellation of his three-day Tamil Nadu trip has sparked off speculation of a Union Cabinet reshuffle. The rejig may see induction of new faces to accommodate the NDA allies and drop of some non-performing ministers. Shah was scheduled to fly to Chennai on Tuesday as part of his nationwide tour to expand the party's base and seek ground report ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. But, the BJP chief cancelled his visit to stay back in the national capital, party sources said. After the JD(U)'s formal announcement on joining the NDA, the BJP's ruling coalition partner in Bihar will be rewarded with a berth in the Modi government. The buzz among the political circles is that the JD(U) may get one or two portfolios depending on negotiations with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. There are already half-a-dozen Union ministers from Bihar. Prime Minister Narendra Modi may induct more leaders from the South into his government, which, a senior BJP leader said, was ...

Voted for Ahmed Patel, says Guj JD(U) legislator 21.8.2017 Deccan Herald - National
Chhotu Vasava, the lone JD(U) legislator in Gujarat on Monday reiterated that he had voted for Congress candidate Ahmed Patel in the recently concluded Rajya Sabha polls from the state. "I have voted for Ahmed Patel," he told local television channels in a telephonic interview. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's claim that he voted for the BJP was not true, he said. "What can I say if such a senior political leader is making misleading statements," he said. However, Vasava alleged that Nitish or his aide K C Tyagi could have taken money from the BJP to force him to vote against Patel. "They must have taken Rs 50 crore. Why else was he (Nitish) pressurising me to vote for the BJP?" Vasava, who represents ST seat of Jhagadia in Bharuch district of South Gujarat, said. He called Nitish as Bihar's Shankarsinh Vaghela. "Nitish has gone to the BJP without taking me in to confidence. If he had done so, then I would have listened to him. But as he had left us to go with the BJP, I have voted for Ahmed Patel," ...
