NEW DELHI: Power minister Piyush Goyal, newly elevated to cabinet rank, was on Sunday given charge of the railway ministry.
Goyal replaces Suresh Prabhu who had offered to resign after a spate of train accidents in the last month.
Analysts said the BJP leadership felt Goyal has done a competent job in implementing reforms in the power and coal sectors.
Goyal’s elevation is no surprise as he has been considered for long amongst the top achievers in the Modi Cabinet. Goyal at 52 is one of the youngest ministers in the Modi government and was made the minister of state for the first time in 2014. Today in 2017, within three years, Goyal has become the full-fledged Cabinet minister in Modi’s council of ministers.
Rewarded for his hard work, Piyush Goyal, holding charge of four important ministries (Power, Coal, Renewable Energy and Mines) as the minister of state with Independent Charge, has been elevated to the rank of a full-fledged cabinet minister in the reshuffle by Narendra Modi government on Sunday morning.
Dharmendra Pradhan performed well in a scheme close to PM Modi – Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana – through which LPG connections have been provided to 2.5 crore people.
Like another Minister of State who has been elevated to Cabinet rank Piyush Goyal, Pradhan’s political career has also risen steeply in the BJP. He is perceived to have worked well with the twin responsibilities of an MoS and a party worker.
