Secunderabad Member of Parliament Bandaru Dattatreya allegedly resigned to his ministerial post on Friday. Following the resignation, the labour minister apparently said that he would work for the party. This development comes after the reports on Narendra Modi Cabinet reshuffle emerged.
This third cabinet expansion to take place on Sunday will probably be the last major shuffle.
Arun Jaitley, who is finance and defence minister, after the end of the exercise may be left with only one portfolio and most probably defence.
Apart from Dattatreya, other ministers who supposedly offered resignation include Uma Bharti, Kalraj Mishra, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Sanjeev Baliyan, Faggan Singh Kulaste, and Mahendra Nath Pandey.
