Modi New Cabinet: Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a major reshuffle and expansion in the cabinet on Wednesday. He gave place to 36 new faces in the Council of Ministers and promoted seven ministers. At the same time, a total of 12 ministers including Health Minister Harsh Vardhan, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, Information Technology and Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar were discharged.
After the resignation of Harsh Vardhan, the opposition parties are tightening. Today, in gestures about the reshuffle, Rahul Gandhi tweeted with #Change, “Does this mean there will be no more shortage of vaccines? Let us inform that many states including Karnataka, Rajasthan and West Bengal have complained of lack of vaccine.
Does this mean no more vaccine shortage?#Change

Former finance minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram said the first task of the new health minister should be to ensure proper and uninterrupted supply of vaccines in the country.
Once again, vaccination has been suspended at several centers in Tamil Nadu because they have run out of vaccines.

Earlier on Wednesday, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala had tweeted that the Prime Minister himself is the chairman of the epidemic which is being managed through the “National Disaster Management Authority”. Will they also take responsibility for their irresponsible behavior? Will you resign? Or will the health minister alone be made a scapegoat?
He said that the fault is in the engine and the coach is going to be replaced! This is the truth of the expansion of the “poorrous Modi cabinet”!
Mansukh Mandaviya has been given the responsibility of the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in place of Harsh Vardhan. BJP leader Mandaviya, who belongs to Saurashtra, Gujarat, took charge today.
