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.

"My colleagues and I will continue to run on those tracks", Goyal said.
