As a fresh set of ministers have been inducted into the Narendra Modi-led NDA government, the third reshuffle since 2014. Nine new ministers were into the council of ministers and four have been promoted to the Union Cabinet. The swearing-in ceremony began at 10.45 am this morning.

Six ministers in the existing Cabinet “volunteered to resign” in the run-up to the reshuffle, while three other seats fell vacant after the exit of Manohar Parrikar and Venkaiah Naidu, and the death of Anil Madhav Dave, who held Independent Charge of Environment, Forest and Climate Change. The six outgoing ministers from the Cabinet include Kalraj Mishra (MoS MSME), Rajiv Pratap Rudy (MoS Independent Charge of Skill Development), Bandaru Dattatreya (Labour), Faggan Singh Kulaste (MoS Health), Sanjiv Balyan (MoS Water Resources) and Mahendra Nath Pandey (MoS HRD).

      India's Rulers, Her Terrorist Army India as A Country, are CURSE ON HUMAN DIGNITY: We can still hope that Narender Modi's new cabinet, though it is almost impossible but might think Minorities as Human Beings Grant Sikh People Status of Being A Sikh Nation Legally, Not Hindus as per Indian Cons ution.

        Modi has tried to make the best he could do given the paucity of talent available in the BJP Parliamentary party of over 340 MPs. Ultimately, he and Amit Shah must shoulder blame for this as most of the MPs were hand picked as candidates for the Lok Sabha elections in 2014 and for vacancies in Rajya Sabha in 2016, 2017.

          The Modi Government has failed on so many counts, beginning with the failed demonetisation that put people through so much distress. This new gimmick of a futile cabinet reshuffle is nothing but a cover-up for its failures...alas !

            Two good things have happened. 1. Dalbadalu and shameless nitish and his shameless ministers and mlas were totally ignored in this reshufle. As expected, modi has shown nitish his position which is at his shoes. 2. Maharashtras tiger and shivasena pramukh uddhav got ghanta. He now says, " we have not asked for anything etc etc". But modi and devendra has converted this tiger in to cat already and now that cat has become rabbit now. Both nitish and udhhav deserve what they have got. Still both have time to rethink and leave modi amit combination who have been ignoring their nda partners since bjp does not want them at all. LIKE ALL ndaartners, these two are also lachar. They are attached to bjp like paracites. Modi can throw them any time he wants..
