Columnist and author Arun Shourie, who was disinvestment minister in the last NDA government, also met Rajnath Singh.
Sources from the party said Shourie's name has emerged for the post of finance minister, even as Jaitley's name was also making rounds for that post so far. While Sushma Swaraj's name was initially making rounds for the external affairs ministry, sources from the party say there are talks of giving her some other ministry. Rajnath Singh, who initially insisted he would stick to his post, is interested in the home ministry portfolio. Sources from the party say he will get one of the four key ministries - home, finance, external affairs and defence - either now or some time later. Nitin Gadkari is another BJP leader certain to find a place in Modi's cabinet. While Delhi leader Harsh Vardhan is set to get the health ministry, Sumitra Mahajan may get rural development.
Meanwhile, former home secretary R.K. Singh, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Udit Raj, Manoj Tiwari and party leader Vinay Katiyar were seen at the RSS office where they met senior functionaries.
The BJP won the Lok Sabha elections with a thumping majority, getting 282 seats. Modi will be formally elected the leader of the BJP parliamentary party Tuesday, after which he would meet President Pranab Mukherjee to stake claim to form the government. The new cabinet is expected to be sworn-in by the end of this week.
