External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj was unable to attend the swearing in ceremony of the new cabinet ministers held at Rashtrapati Bhawan on Tuesday. She tweeted that she would be unable to attend the ceremony since she is scheduled to meet with the Foreign Minister of Hungary.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi brought in nineteen new faces to the cabinet along with reshuffling some of the existing faces.

She went on to add a welcome note to those joining the cabinet and followed it up with another tweet reminding the media to avoid using the headline “Sushma skips oath ceremony.”

The portfolios allocated to these ministers will be known in the evening. The top four – Finance, Home, External Affairs and Defence – has not been touched.
