          Smriti irani is the best and a hard working HRD minister of India. She is honest and courageous. She is shifted to textile minister as the part of reorientation. These all ministers are not power hungry. They are happy to serve for the nation. They all are working as a team. Her pority is only growing. She has only bright future as she is a young and smart lady. These reshuffle doesn't mean anything. Next time she can also be posted as a foreign minister, who knows. Modi government wants a small changes. In this case every body is happy. Doesn't matter what post they get or they are out, they all are doing their best for the sake of the nation. People are not fed by media. We know where we are. No one need to say our position. I think, textile industry is facing compeion from abroad, so that, there an urgent need to fix the problem. As smart lady, she will make the industry competent. What we read from media is just ' much ado about nothing' to cover vacant spaces.

Why?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;It is to convert the black money of BJP into white money and bringing it back. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;NOW YOU BET, HER FIRST FOREIGN VISIT WILL BE LIECHTENSTEIN. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Previously Sushma Swaraj was the I charge for the same filthy job!

            Smriti Irani was one of the better performing ministers in Modi cabinet despite the several controversies which dogged her in recent times. Maybe, she was not in the good books of Amit Shah who had earlier removed her from the party's national committee. This may be a temporary set back for Smriti but she has long and bright years ahead in politics as she is one of the most competent women politician in the country.
