Minister of State(MoS) for Defence & Jaipur MP Lalchand Kataria's ministry is likely to be changed as per media reports.

Sikar MP Mahadev Singh Khandela's expulsion from the union ministry was anticipated much early, but his replacement was largely seen to be coming from among the Congress MPs of Marwar or Shekhawati regions-the Jat community's strongholds. Congress state president Chandrabhan, who is also a Jat from Shekhawati, however, justified the party high command decision. "Congress has always given enough representation to Jats in the union ministry. The party takes equal care of all castes and communities," he replied, on being asked if the community was peeved at none of its MPs getting a cabinet portfolio in the reshuffle
