Ex union minister of state for labour and employment Dattatreya was asked to put in his papers prior to the Cabinet reshuffle.
Well, being a long-time member of the party, it did raise a few questions. However, it is now being said that Dattanna did have enough warnings.
The Centre is said to have warned him at least twice regarding the increasing corruption in his ministry and the haphazard and rather dubious appointments in various departments, committees and organisations under the ministry.
Another reason that cost him his portfolio was his lack of understanding during key discussions over labour reforms.
Prime Minister Modi is said to have realized that Dattatreya was not a man of today's times and this led to his exit.
While there was talk of Dattatreya being offered an alternate ministry, Modi had decided against it as the report on him was completely negative.
However, given his seniority in the party, there is a likelihood of Dattatreya being offered a governor's post.
