Mindsets are hard to change about Indian ministers. But Khurki feels it is time some notions are put through a wash and brought out clean!
The opposition parties might always be on the lookout for a reason to take the ruling party to task, but there are some ministers in Prime Minister’s cabinet who are taking their responsibility very seriously and working earnestly.
1. Piyush Goyal
Minister of State with Independent Charge for Power, Coal, New, and Renewable Energy
We need to give him credit for the Grameen Vidyutikaran Android app. Anybody who has this app can check the progress of the rural electrification by glancing at the dashboard.
2. Smriti Irani
Human Resource Development Minister
The lady, who has been in the news for the wrong reasons, has launched many apps for mobiles and online study material. Parents can now keep a watch on their child’s performance as well as their attendance.
3. General (Retd.) V K Singh
Minister of State for External Affairs
Like a true general, the minister has executed many rescue operations of Indians from Yemen and other countries. So successful was the operation that 26 other countries asked for India’s help.
4. Sushma Swaraj
Minister of External Affairs
She has been in the news for her fiery speeches and also for getting a deaf and mute Indian woman back to India from Pakistan. She played a key role in bringing back the specially-abled Geeta from Pakistan after accidentally crossing the border over a decade ago, to India. So active is her team, that you just need to give her a shout in distress and she comes to your rescue.
5. Manohar Parrikar
This defence minister only mean business! In his tenure he has cleared more than forty defence proposals, and provided the defence with the much-needed boost.
