India’s Foreign Minister resigns; Cabinet Reshuffle Likely To Include Young Leaders

The cabinet reshuffle likely this Sunday will include a restructuring of the Congress party as well to prepare for upcoming crucial assembly elections, according to party leaders aware of the developments.

The cabinet reshuffle may see a group of young leaders entering government, two Congress leaders said, declining to be named.
External affairs minister S.M. Krishna stepped down from his post on Friday ahead of the reshuffle, indicating changes are likely in key departments. Information and broadcasting minister Ambika Soni is likely to take up a role in the Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi’s inner circle, one of the Congress leaders said.
