PM Modi Cabinet Expansion 2021: Union Cabinet, which can have 81 members, currently has 53 ministers.

New Delhi:

Ravi Shankar Prasad and Prakash Javadekar quit as Union Ministers today, in big upsets ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet reshuffle. The swearing-in ceremony of the new ministers is underway at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in the national capital.

Forty three new ministers will take oath today as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet is set to get a facelift amid efforts to reinvigorate the administration that has been heavily criticised for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, soaring prices of essentials among a range of issues.

Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan and Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank are among 12 ministers who resigned today, hours before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet reshuffle.

Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank and Labour Minister Santosh Gangwar were the first to quit the Union Cabinet today.

Mr Pokhriyal and Mr Gangwar have reportedly given health reasons in their resignation letters. Babul Supriyo, in a Facebook post, said that he has also quit as Union Minister of State for Environment.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mega cabinet reshuffle, the first in his second term, will be announced today at 6 pm. According to top government sources, the new cabinet will be the youngest ever in India’s history.

The average age will be the lowest ever after the revamp, there will be more women ministers and special representation will be given to those who have administrative experience, sources said.

Ahead of the expansion, PM Modi’s government on Tuesday created a new ‘Ministry of Cooperation’, looking to provide more heft to the cooperative movement in the country.

The Union Cabinet, which can have 81 members, currently has 53 ministers. This means 28 ministers can be added.

PM Modi is making changes to his cabinet for the first time since he started his second term in 2019.
