Several new faces, including some from the BJP's allies, are expected to join the government when Prime Minister Narendra Modi undertakes a reshuffle of his council of ministers on Sunday.

With media reports suggesting a possible reshuffle of the Union Cabinet, senior All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader and Deputy Lok Sabha Speaker M Thambidurai met Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah in New Delhi on Thursday evening.

The strength of Manmohan Singh's UPA government stood at 78 after its last Cabinet reshuffle in October 2012. Last month Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu also resigned to become the vice-president. The environment ministry was reassigned as additional charge after the death of minister Anil Dave. The excel sheet has the list of existing ministers of the Modi Cabinet, who have been marked P (indicating positive) and N (indicating negative) on the basis of their performance so far.

Let's have a look at what is expected at the tomorrow's Cabinet reshuffle.

The other significant question is about Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, whose offer to quit in the wake of recent train accidents had been put on hold pending the reshuffle.
