DMK now uncertain over Cabinet positions

DMK now uncertain over Cabinet positions

Mukherjee will meet the former chief minister after his official engagements in the city.
On the agenda will be eliciting the name/names from the DMK leader to be included in the cabinet reshuffle.

The two cabinet births allocated for the DMK has been vacant with the exit of former Telecom Minister A Raja and Textiles Minister Dayanidhi Maran over the 2G spectrum allocation scam.

Despite the supposed efforts by DMK Parliamentary Party leader T R Baalu for a re-entry to the union cabinet, the Prime Minister is not said to favour him.

In fact, it is highly likely that party supremo Karunanidhi may not propose replacements considering the state the party finds itself in.

A new twist was given to the ongoing drama by Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Lalu Prasad who is said to be lobbying for a Cabinet berth for himself.

Rashtriya Janata Dal has four MPs in Lok Sabha. It will not be a surprise if the government obliges him.
