Cabinet Reshuffle: The new ministers of the Narendra Modi government take oath of office and secrecy at the Rashtrapati Bhavan

The first to take the oath of office and secrecy was former Maharashtra CM Narayan Rane, followed by former Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal.

On Wednesday (July 7), a total of 43 leaders of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) took oath as Ministers in the Narendra Modi government. The oath-taking ceremony started at 6 pm at the Darbar Hall of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. This is the first cabinet reshuffle since the BJP formed the government in May 2019. Among the 43 ministers who took oath, 15 are cabinet ministers, and the rest 28 are ministers of state.

While most of the ministers are new inductions in the ministry, seven existing ministers of state are also taking oath as cabinet ministers, as they have been promoted as cabinet ministers. They are Anurag Thakur, Hardeep Singh Puri, Kiren Rijiju, Parshottam Rupala, G Kishan Reddy, Raj Kumar Singh and Mansukh Mandaviya.

Although 43 new ministers took oath today, the strength of the Modi government will go up by 24 only. This is because, among the 43 ministers who took the oath, 7 are existing Ministers of State promoted to cabinet rank. Apart from that, 12 ministers have resigned from the union ministry today.

The first to take the oath of office and secrecy was former Maharashtra CM Narayan Rane, followed by former Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal. Senior BJP leader Dr. Virendra Kumar and former Congress leader Jyotiraditya M Scindia were sworn in next.
