Aiming image makeover and poll readiness with caste equations, PM Narendra Modi on Wednesday carried out a major shakeout of his council of ministers.

The second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic apparently accounted for 12 ministers, including heavyweights Harsh Vardhan, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Prakash Javdekar, dropped as Modi sought to shake off inertia by infusing fresh bloods to rejuvenate the NDA government at the Centre.

The axe also fell on Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank (Education), Sadananda Gauda (Chemical and fertilizer), and six Ministers of states, which included the likes of Santosh Kumar Gangwar, Babul Suprio. With Thaverchand Gehlot, the Prime Minister got rid of six Cabinet ministers.

Anurag Thakur, Hardeep Puri, G Kishen Reddy, Kiren Rijiju. R K Singh, Mansukh Mandavia, Purushottam Rupala were promoted to the Cabinet ranks, seemingly as rewards for their combativeness and political significance in their respective states, while 43 ministers were administered the oath of office by President Ram Nath Kovind.
