New Delhi: External Affairs Minister S M
Krishna on Friday deftly handled a question at a press conference
on speculation about his being replaced as the minister in a
possible cabinet reshuffle.

He said while speculation was "exclusive prerogative"
of media, the decision (cabinet reshuffling) was ultimately
the Prime Minister`s.

Speculation is the exclusive prerogative of the ladies and
gentlemen in media and they keep "speculating and we keep
reading and watching it," Krishna said adding and "we take
things as they come."

He was asked whether he was looking for bigger challenges
than the EAM in case there was a cabinet reshuffle.

"Ultimately, it is the Prime Minister`s prerogative," he
said.
