Narendra Modi cabinet with names and detailed portfolios

Amit Shah is India’s new home minister and Rajanth Singh the new defence minister. This announcemnet was made a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi took the oath of office from President Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhavan at a gala ceremony attended by nearly 8,000 people, including foreign dignitaries. Besides him, other cabinet ministers were also sworn in.

With this, speculations on who will make it to the second Modi government have also come to rest. Since May 23 when results of the 2019 Lok Sabha election were announced and BJP returned to power with a thumping majority (303 seats on its own and 353 with NDA partners), various names have come up as possible ministers in the new Modi government.

For his second term, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reposed trust on many ministers who were part of his first government. These names include Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari, Sadananda Gowda, Nirmala Sitharaman among others.

On Wednesday, Arun Jaitley, who served as the finance minister in the first Modi government, requested PM Modi that he should not be given any responsibility in the new government due to his poor health.

Sushma Swaraj, another senior BJP leader who held the portfolio of external affairs, is no longer part of the Modi government due to health reasons. At present, Sushma Swaraj is not a member of the Lok Sabha or the Rajya Sabha. She did not contest the 2019 Lok Sabha election citing health reasons.
