Modi to drive home perform or perish mantra


A major reshuffle of the Union Council of Ministers is on the cards on Sunday when Modi inducts new faces and reallocates portfolios to adjust vacancies, BJP officials said.

In his last reshuffle in July 2016, Modi dropped five ministers and demoted two. So far, seven ministers are said to have sent in their resignations ahead of the Sunday exercise.

On Friday, the prime minister spent time with his top aides with a single objective, officials said.

As time runs out before the next Lok Sabha elections in 2019, Modi is determined to "re-energise" his council of ministers.

A detailed chart of ministers, ministries and their work flow and rating has been prepared by the Prime Minister’s Office, with specifics like the work done so far and the tasks ahead.

A similar "fact sheet" has also been prepared by Shah, assessing the "achievements" of the ministers, rating them on tasks assigned by the party, which were aimed at taking the government’s schemes and achievements to the masses.

Modi’s close aides said the prime minister is "exasperated" by the low quality of performance of some ministers who may have to be dropped.

On the other hand, there were some ministers whose work had gone beyond his initial expectation. They would be rewarded.
Party officials said "performance criteria" would be the benchmark.

Besides, the prime minister would also factor in other criteria, including adequate representation for social groups in the states that go to polls in the next 15 months.

Since he became prime minister, Modi has carried out only two Cabinet reshuffles and expansions — in November 2014 and July 2016.
