Suresh Prabhu takes charge as Commerce & Industry minister replaces Nirmala Sitharaman

Suresh Parabhu

Suresh Prabhu has been mentoring me, directing me and taking care of me for the past 20 years. "He (Prabhu) has worked with my father in Atal Bihari Vajpayee government", he said. This is so because Goyal has just under two years' time before the 2019 General elections to deliver which includes finishing some of Modi's dream projects, while brining train accidents to the least. According to the reports, Piyush Goyal is slated to be the next railways minister.

Nirmala Sitharaman emerged as the biggest gainer of the cabinet reshuffle today as Prime Minister Modi gave her the heavyweight Defence portfolio, while Piyush Goyal replaced Suresh Prabhu in the Railway Ministry in a major rejig, which saw nine new faces being inducted.

Goyal would get the help of Lohani, an Indian Railway Service officer who knows the Railways inside-outside, in setting the agenda for Railways. "Then P for Prabhu, my elder brother, taught me how to combine the three sectors - power, renewable energy and coal and move towards development at a fast pace", he said. "My colleagues and I will continue to run on those tracks", Goyal said.

Nitin Gadkari, who was holding Road Transport and Highways and Shipping, will also head the Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Ministry.

He has now been appointed the Minister of Commerce and Industry.

Prabhu had offered to quit on August 23 after back-to-back train derailments.
