BRICS Bank Chairman KV Kamath and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament (MP) Swapan Dasgupta could be the latest technocrats to be inducted into the Union Cabinet, according to a report by news agency IANS.

The report suggests that while Kamath, a veteran banker, could be the next Minister of State for Finance, Dasgupta could be inducted as a junior minister for Human Resource Development (HRD). Moneycontrol could not independently verify the report.

Kamath has been the Chairman of ICICI Bank and Infosys. Dasgupta, a right-wing ideologue, could be called in to handle the unrest that major central universities have been witnessing on their campuses.
