Modi 2.0: Cabinet portfolios announced, complete list of who got what
Along with PM Modi, 24 Cabinet ministers, nine Ministers of State (Independent charge) and 24 Ministers of State took oath yesterday

The final allocation of cabinet portfolios was announced on Friday, a day after Narendra Modi was sworn in as the Prime Minister of India for the second time by President Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Along with PM Modi, 24 Cabinet ministers, nine Ministers of State (Independent charge) and 24 Ministers of State took the oath.

PM Modi will personally handle the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions; Department of Atomic Energy; Department of Space; and other important policy issues.

The remaining cabinet positions were filled by senior leaders of the BJP and its allies in theNational Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Of all 58 leaders sworn-in as Union ministers, 54 are from the BJP while the remaining are from the four NDA allies – Shiv Sena, Shiromani Akali Dal, Lok Janshakti Party, and Republican Party of India (A).

Other NDA partners like Nitish Kumar-led JD (U) and Anupriya Patel’s Apna Dal have no ministers in the new cabinet as they were unhappy with the proposed allocations.

In a landslide victory, the BJP managed to secure 303 seats on its own in the 545-member house in the recently concluded seven-phased 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The tally of the BJP-led NDA stood at 353 seats.
