Cabinet Reshuffle: Who’s In, Who’s Out

PM Modi Cabinet Expansion Ministers List 2021: The new cabinet will be the "youngest-ever" in India's history, top government sources say.

New Delhi: Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan has stepped down ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mega cabinet reshuffle, the first in his second term, sources have said. Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, and Union Minister Babul Supriyo have also quit.
