Cabinet Reshuffle: Modi Changing the Knights


It’s time for the ministers of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha to brush off the dust from their white collars for Modi government has reshuffled its cabinet by recruiting new comers in it. Prime Minister Modi has induced 19 new faces in the cabinet complying with their professional expertise and experience. Modi has taken a step ahead and declared that the cabinet needs “doers and performers” in replacement to some non- performers among whom five ministers have already resigned to pave the carpet for the entrants. Those five ministers are Nihal Chand, Ram Shankar Katheria, Sanwar Lal Jat, Manuskhbhai D Vasva and M K Kundariya, all from the BJP.

It seems like Modi is in need of the new nerves to match his own dynamic energy even at this age. Evidently, he has been extremely diligent to choose his junior ministers through an exhaustive vetting process. He has screened out those who can “deliver on his vision of development and priorities- gaon, garib and kisan.” Giving the priorities to the villages (gaon), the poor (garib) and the farmers (kisan) Modi government is setting a new goal to work on the internal affairs apparently to strengthen the weakness of the nation.

Of the 19 new enrols, 13 are from the Lok Sabha and 5 from the Rajya Sabha. Among them, 2 are from the Scheduled Tribes and 5 from the Scheduled Castes. Some of the major required changes done by Modi are well appreciated. They are mentioned below:

Modi has split the Telecommunication and IT Ministry. Manoj Sinha has been given the independent charge for telecom replacing Ravi Shankar Prasad, the latter is now the new Law Minister along with retaining the Electronics and It Ministry. Rajiv Pratap Rudy has been shunt out of Parliamentary affairs transferring his position to S.S. Ahluwalia. The former Environment Minister, Prakash Javadekar has replaced Smriti Irani in the HRD Ministry. The new performer has not only talked about raising the educational standards but also has freed himself from the biasness of saffronisation. The Environment Ministry is now independently in charge of Anil Madhav Dave. Venkaiah Naidu has replaced Arun Jaitley as Information & Broadcasting Minister but Jaitley remains in charge of Finance.

The well-managed recruitment process has strictly followed Prime Minister’s words not to secern out enrols on the basis of their caste, creed and religion. Though Congress has tried its magical spells and speeches to get the support of the people from agricultural background and Dalit community but Modi government knows how to cut them off at the pass.

According to the sources, all the 19 ministers are from 10 states- Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Bengal, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Uttarakhand, Karnataka and Assam. There are 3 each from Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat, both the states where elections will be held next year.

Well, the government knows their favouring hours and how to bring out the best in such times.
