Nirmala takes charge as country’s first woman Defence Minister

Agencies, New Delhi

Ms Nirmala Sitharaman, who was appointed as the country’s first full-fledged woman Defence Minister in Sunday’s cabinet reshuffle, today assumed charge of office at the south block here.

The takeover of the charge from Minister Arun Jaitley was delayed by two days as the outgoing Defence Minister was in Japan for a ministerial dialogue. Earlier, Ms Sitharaman has served as Minister for Commerce and Industry and also as BJP’s spokesperson.
