The seventeenth Lok Sabha of India came into being on May 30, 2019, with the oath-taking ceremony of India’s sixteenth Prime Minister Narendra Modi alongside the Council Cabinet of Ministers.

By winning 303 seats, the Bharatiya Janata Party got the unequivocal command to govern the nation for another five years. A New List of Cabinet Ministers came in which Narendra Modi has dropped 28 out of the 71 ministers from the past team as he is a man with a great vision, while 23 crisp appearances have been incorporated into the new Cabinet. BJP national president Amit Shah was allotted the Home Ministry and former Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar was made the External Affairs Minister. Both new faces immediately also became members of the Cabinet Committee on Security, the most powerful Cabinet sub-committee.

PM Narendra Modi has rolled out strong improvements in the main four Ministries that structure the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), with Mr Jaishankar being the greatest gainer, having joined the legislature as a Cabinet Minister and enlisted straight into the CCS. Many other Union Cabinet Ministers have held their portfolios from the first Narendra Modi government, with some being given additional departments.

  • Railroad Minister Piyush Goyal holds the position of the Ministry of the expansion of Commerce, which was prior held by Suresh Prabhu who has been dropped.
  • Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan holds the important position and has been given the extra duty of Steel.
  • Senior Minister Nitin Gadkari proceeds as the Minister of Road Transport and Highways and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises.
  • Ravi Shankar Prasad remains on as the Law Minister, alongside Information Technology and Telecommunications.
  • Smriti Irani, who defeated Congress president Rahul Gandhi in Amethi, continues with her old portfolio of Textiles, along with Women and Child Development, which was formerly held by Maneka Gandhi.
  • Former Minister of State for Agriculture Gajendra Singh Shekhawat was the greatest gainer. He will head the newly created “Jal Shakti” Ministry.
  • The Agriculture portfolio has been allotted to Narendra Singh Tomar, along with his old portfolios of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj.

A few Ministers from the past government held their portfolios, with some given add on duties. Cabinet Ministers Lists-2019 of the Narendra Modi government is here-

  • Thawarchand Gehlot has again been assigned the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, with previous Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda being the new Tribal Affairs Minister.
  • Recently made Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal “Nishank” is the new Minister for Human Resources

  • Ram Vilas Paswan stays with Food and Consumer Affairs
  • Shiv Sena’s Arvind Sawant will hold heavy industries
  • Ramdas Athawale continues as junior Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment.

The first decisions meeting of the New List of Cabinet Ministers that was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was held in less than 24 hours of the new member’s oath-taking ceremony. All these ministers that were being sworn-in by the President, are pro-poor, pro-farmer, pro-unorganized labour and for the welfare of families of soldiers killed in terror and Naxal attacks. Narendra Modi tweeted:

All the decisions that were taken in the Union Cabinet Ministers meeting are sure to fulfil all the promise made by PM Modi in his election campaign. Promises such as two-hectare or five-acre ceiling would be removed for giving Rs 6,000 per annum to farmers under PM Kisan Samman Nidhi. The policy will now cover roughly around 18.5 crore farmers and the government will now spend a sum total of Rs. 87,000 crores as against the earlier outlay of Rs 75,000 crore.

An impulsive writer and compulsive procrastinator, she energizes her daily grind with coffee, diversions and discourse. All she need to get through life is a flawlessly brewed coffee to accompany her vacillation and is lethargically motivated. On days when she is not writing, you’ll find her reading, watching movies and pigging out. Usually an escapist from worldly problem, seeking solace in books and food. Has a master’s degree in classical dance and has left no corners undiscovered when it comes to being creative and learning an art. A crazy coffee sweetheart who earnestly trusts in the magical power of words.
