By not making any changes in portfolios, Modi has given a clear message

  • Senior and experienced colleagues of allied parties should also be honored

The way Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given place to allies in the cabinet in his third term on the basis of practical and political needs rather than numbers, implies he has shown trust in senior and trusted colleagues of his old team rather than new people and has given responsibility of the same departments to most of the former ministers.

If sources are to be believed, important departments like Railways, Roads, Agriculture were demanded by the allies but by giving responsibility of important departments like Home, Defence, Finance, Railways, Roads, Health, Agriculture, Education, Foreign Affairs, Commerce, Information Broadcasting, Communication, Petroleum, Law to trusted and experienced leaders of BJP, the Prime Minister has made it clear that only experienced allies of BJP will play the main role in the journey of development.

Not only this, an attempt has been made to coordinate by giving Panchayati Raj to Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lallan Singh of the ally party, Food Processing to Chirag Paswan, Small Industries to Jitan Ram Manjhi, Civil Aviation to K Ram Mohan Naidu, Steel and Heavy Industries to HD Kumaraswamy and Jal Shakti to CR Patil, Skill Development Ministry to Jayant Chaudhary. The Prime Minister has respected the experience of former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan by giving him the responsibility of Agriculture and Rural Development and Energy and Urban Development Ministry to Manohar Lal Khattar. If sources are to be believed, a strategy has been made to prepare the MPs who have become ministers for the future by placing them with experienced leaders in the distribution of departments. By not changing the departments of most of the senior ministers who were ministers in Modi’s second term, and approving their better work, a clear message has been given that those who move forward with a planned strategy will continue to be encouraged.
