Modi Wants to Revamp Cabinet

After a drubbing in a state poll in November, Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to overhaul his cabinet to weed out underperformers and improve his government's image. Problem is, several sources said, he can't find the right replacements.
As New Delhi buzzes with speculation about changes in several ministries, senior members of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and a close aide to Modi said some changes could come early next year but the talent pool was too shallow to engineer a major revamp, Reuters reported.
Pressure is mounting on Modi to revive his party's fortunes. Nearly two years after he swept to power on a promise of jobs and growth, the shine is coming off—reforms to revive investment have withered and the economy is stuttering. Rural distress has grown after two successive droughts.
