Amit Shah Becomes Home Minister, Rajnath’s Responsibility for the defense ministry

New Delhi : In Narendra Modi’s new government, two veteran leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj decided to stay out of the cabinet citing health reasons. Due to this, Prime Minister Modi had to give the responsibility of important ministries to new people on Friday. The name that comes first in this is that of Amit Shah. He has been made the Home Minister. Prior to this, he has no experience of any ministry in the central government. They will have the responsibility to handle both the BJP and the country.

There have been many changes in the corridors of power in Modi 2.0. Rajnath Singh has been given the responsibility of the Ministry of Defense. He was the Home Minister in Modi’s first government. Now Amit Shah has to prove that his ability is not only limited to organization, booth management and electoral strategy, but he can also become a good administrator.

Rajnath Singh was sworn in after Modi at the swearing-in ceremony and followed by Amit Shah’s number. Nitin Gadkari was sworn in at number four after Shah. This sequence clearly underlines the status of leaders within the party and the government.

While the pair of Modi and Shah seems to be the center of strength in the party and government, Rajnath and Gadkari symbolize the power behind the Sangh Parivar. If he dominates within the party, then his role becomes the most important.

The withdrawal of Jaitley and Swaraj has benefited the most BJP president Amit Shah and former foreign secretary S Jaishankar. Suresh Prabhu has not got a place in the cabinet. It is clear that Modi considers himself different. However, Sadanand Gowda remains in the cabinet.

The inclusion of Jaishankar means that Modi will not shy away from playing bets on successful bureaucrats. Apart from this, RK Singh and Hardeep Puri, who were involved in the previous Modi government, have also been given ministers this time. Similarly, former Army Chief R.I. General VK Singh is also included in the cabinet.

Jaishankar, along with NSA Ajit Doval, resolved the Doklam issue with China. He has also been the US Ambassador to India. If Jaishankar is included as a foreign minister, it will not be surprising. They will be able to deal better with volatile situations with the Trump government.

The biggest change in this is that of Amit Shah, whether inside or outside the government, his strength will not decrease. He is a keen player in this department.

Amit Shah, the most powerful minister of Modi government, will take over the Home Ministry today. Amit Shah will go to office at eleven past half this morning. Please tell Amit Shah has become a minister for the first time in the central government. Also today, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will also take charge. Rajnath Singh was the Home Minister in the last Modi government. Before assuming the responsibility of the Ministry of Defense, Rajnath Singh will go to War Memorial, bow to the martyrs.
