Kumar Anshuman 14 May 2018
Smriti Irani after being stripped off the prestigious I&B Ministry will only handle Textile Ministry. Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, who is working as the Minister of State in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, will now see the Ministry of I & B fully.
Railway minister Piyush Goyal was temporarily given additional charge of the Union finance ministry in a Cabinet reshuffle announced late on Monday, the eve of the Karnataka election results. Earlier also, she was removed as the HRD Minister and was replaced by Prakash Javadekar. "SS Ahluwalia assigned the portfolio of MoS in Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, relieved of his charges of MoS in Ministry of Drinking Water & Sanitation".
The minister, who was suffering from a kidney ailment, has been undergoing dialysis for the last one month. Meanwhile, S S Ahluwalia will look after Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.
Smriti Irani had taken over the portfolio last July as an additional charge when Venkaiah Naidu resigned after emerging as NDA's pick for the post of the vice-president.
