As the BJP government gears up for their third cabinet reshuffle on Sunday, the government has evaluated minsters' term in just two classes, positive and negative, say reports.

An excel sheet was prepared of the ministers classified as 'positive' and 'negative' based on their work, which was submitted to the Prime Minister and BJP national president Amit Shah.

All the ministers were graded in the list equally, BJP and allies alike.

The ministers' pro-activity and role in taking out party's goals like Sankalp Yatra, Tiranga Yatra and Teen Saal Bemisaal are also a big determiner in their performance review.

The ministers who fall under the 'negative' list are expected to be replaces or shifted to another ministry.
