Reports have indicated that the Home minister P Chidambaram, is set to take the reigns of the Finance ministry yet again. In a overhaul of the cabinet, Prime minister Manmohan Singh is expected to re-shuffle the ministries and give the charge of the Finance to Chidambaram.
The portfolio, is currently held by Manmohan Singh himself, after Pranab Mukherjee, resigned from the cabinet to contest the Presidential elections.
Reports are also pouring that indicate the Home ministry being set to be given to Sushil Kumar Shinde, who is currently holding the Power ministry.
Chidambaram has been the Finance Minister twice in the past. Chidambaram is also appointed as the head of the Group of Ministers (GoM) on telecom, which many see as a measure to head on with the opposition by the ruling UPA.
