It was also believed that Piyush Goyal may become the full-time Finance Minister after donning the role part-time for some months in the last term due to the absence of Arun Jaitley because of health reasons.
Market expert Ajay Bagga had predicted on Thursday that the response of markets to either Shah or Jaitley would be positive. "If Amit Shah is given the Ministry of Finance, it will be clear that he is the second most important person in the government. He has been a banker and been associated with financial services for 30 years now, so he has the experience. But, there are some reports claiming that he has an important role to play in the party. So, things will be clear by evening," Bagga had told Zee Business TV.
