New Delhi: The Union Cabinet led by PM Narendra Modi has been expanded and reshuffled. A total of 15 cabinet ministers and 28 ministers of state were sworn in in the cabinet. PM Modi’s new team has taken charge. Although there were speculations that Varun Gandhi, son of former Union Minister Maneka Gandhi, may also get a place in the cabinet expansion, but it did not happen. Now Maneka Gandhi’s statement has come out.
Talking to the media during the two-day Sultanpur tour, Maneka Gandhi said, “We are around 600-650 MPs, so how many can the Prime Minister give space to. The one who got the place is right.”
During the first term of the Modi government, Maneka Gandhi held the Child Development Ministry. But in the second term, he did not get a place in the cabinet. Assembly elections in UP are due early next year. In such a situation, seven leaders have been given ministerial posts from the UP quota. But Maneka Gandhi or Varun Gandhi did not find a place in the cabinet.
UP has the most emphasis in cabinet expansion
Assembly elections are to be held in Uttar Pradesh in the year 2022 and this election is very important for BJP, that is why UP was given maximum importance in the cabinet expansion. In this expansion, an attempt was made to solve the caste and regional equations before the elections.
Keeping the caste equation in the selection of the seven ministers of UP who have been included, the state assembly elections to be held early next year have also been kept in mind. Of the new Union ministers who have been made from the state, three belong to the backward class, three to the Dalit group and one to the Brahmin community. Of these seven faces, only one is from an ally and the rest are MPs from the BJP.
