Among the probable names doing the rounds from politically significant Uttar Pradesh are party MPs Yogi Adityanath, Satyapal Singh and Sadhvi Savitri Bai Phoole.

The names of Navjot Singh Sidhu, Rameshwar Teli from Assam and Bhagat Singh Koshyari and Ajay Tamta from Uttarakhand are also doing the rounds. There is no representation from Uttarkhand in the Cabinet at present.
