    A Union Cabinet reshuffle on the cards for a while, is now directly connected with Tirupati Balaji, say senior BJP leaders who are expecting a call from the PMO for inclusion in the cabinet.

    President Ram Nath Kovind will be at the Tirupati Balaji temple on Friday and Saturday to inaugurate the new hospital building of the Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences and the Sri Padmavathi Medical College for Women.

    On the same day, he will also attend a civic reception and public meeting at the Sri Venkateswara Art College Ground, Tirupati.

    On September 2, the President will have darshan of Sri Varahaswamy temple in Tirumala before returning to Delhi.

    So the Union Cabinet shuffle and expansion will be either on Saturday evening or Sunday morning, says a source in the Prime Minister's Office.

    On Sunday afternoon, the Prime Minister is leaving for Myanmar and then China for the BRICS summit. Therefore the only window open for a Cabinet shuffle is Sunday morning.

    An expansion of the council of ministers is also due because of the vacancies that have been created due to the sudden demise of environment minister Anil Dave and the return of former defence minister Manohar Parrikar as the chief minister of Goa. The election of M. Venkaiah Naidu as vice-president also deprived the cabinet of a key minister.

    Hope I won't be defence minister for long: Jaitley goes nudge nudge wink wink

    Defence Minister Arun Jaitley has hinted that he would not be serving the post for long. Responding to a poser, during a press briefing, on his tenure as the defence minister, the union minister said, "At least I hope not very long. That's anyway not me to decide."

    Re-iterating his stand on the cash squeeze that has posed a threat for the terrorist elements in Jammu and Kashmir and Chhattisgarh, Jaitley yesterday claimed that the shortage of currency has resulted in a shortage of 'stone throwers' for the separatists.

    "For the first time, the RBI has scrutinised each note, which has helped them differentiate between fake notes from the authentic ones. The cash squeeze is evident, since these terrorist elements are finding it difficult to mobilise support for them. Without enough cash notes, it is difficult to gather stone throwers as before," said Jaitley.

    Speaking on the way forward, Jaitley stated that the next step would be to put an end to black money used in elections, adding that
