New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to meet BJP President JP Nadda and other top ministers today amid rumours of Cabinet expansion. The meeting will reportedly be held at 5 pm today. 


The meeting will see the presence of Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP national president JP Nadda, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman among other top ministers and party leaders, suggested an India Today report citing sources.


Union ministers Dharmendra Pradhan, Narendra Singh Tomar, Prahlad Joshi and Piyush Goyal are also going to be part of the meeting on Tuesday, the report added. 


The meeting will likely include discussion on the performance of ministers and proposals on future schemes. Earlier on June 20, the Prime Minister had held a meeting with top ministers to review government's functioning in last two years. On June 30, PM Modi addressed his council of ministers and asked them to prepare facts and figures to counter charges made by the Opposition. 


It is expected that the meeting will also include key discussion on leaders including Jyotiraditya Scindia, former Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Pashupati Paras, who is currently in leadership tussle of Janshakti Party (LJP) with his nephew Chirag Paswan.


The Union Cabinet currently has 53 ministers but could have 81 members. As 28 ministers can still be accommodated, it is rumoured that the party may add new faces today.
