Cabinet reshuffle 2021
His Government’s image hit by a crisis of capacity and credibility during the second Covid wave, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 7, 2021 signalled a reset effecting the most sweeping change in his Council of Ministers since he took charge for the first time in 2014. As many as 36 new faces were inducted and 12 sitting ministers were shown the door taking the tally in the Council of Ministers to 78 (including the PM), just a notch short of the statutory limit of 81.
The changes mark, arguably, the largest-scale purge in recent times with the Prime Minister divesting six of 23 sitting Cabinet ministers — over one fourth — and one Minister of State (Independent Charge) of their ministerial responsibilities.
