Speculation Over Rajya Sabha Matter
Speculations have begun whether Amit Shah will replace finance and defence minister Arun Jaitley as the Leader of the House in the Rajya Sabha once he becomes a member. Jaitley has his hands full with two big ministries — though he is likely to let go of one in the reshuffle — and is not able to devote ample time to the Upper House. Shah, known as an aggressive leader who readily takes on the Opposition, would lead the BJP charge. Moreover, BJP members are likely to become more vocal to impress their party boss.
