PM Modi Cabinet Expansion: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has tried to reach out to allies in the latest cabinet expansion. JDU leader and Rajya Sabha member from Bihar RCP Singh, Lok Sabha member Pashupati Kumar Paras from Hajipur and Anupriya Patel of Apna Dal (S) have been given place in the cabinet.
These three leaders took oath as ministers at the swearing-in ceremony held at Rashtrapati Bhavan. Let us inform that 36 new ministers have been included in the Modi cabinet today and seven ministers have been promoted. A total of 43 ministers are taking oath.
Let us inform that till now Ramdas Athawale of the Republican Party of India (RPI) was the only leader of the allies in the Council of Ministers.
Keep in mind that there is a coalition government of JDU and BJP in Bihar. JDU was demanding more seats in the cabinet, although only RCP Singh could become a minister. There is an alliance of LJP and BJP. The LJP had broken up recently and Chirag Paswan was left isolated.
Chirag Paswan has objected to the decision to make Paras a minister. He said, “Shri Pashupati Kumar Paras ji has already been expelled from the Lok Janshakti Party due to anti-party and betraying the top leadership and now the party strongly objected to his inclusion in the Union Cabinet. .”
Chirag Paswan said, “There is full respect for the right of the Prime Minister, who does he include in his team and who does not. But as far as LJP is concerned, Shri Paras ji is not a member of our party. In view of the works like breaking the party, if he is made a minister from his faction, then LJP has nothing to do with it.
Elections are going to be held in Uttar Pradesh next year. In such a situation, MP from Mirzapur, Anupriya Patel has been made a minister. She is the daughter of veteran Kurmi leader Sonelal Patel of Purvanchal and has been a minister of state in the first term of the Modi government.
