New Delhi: As the swearing ceremony of the Narendra Modi 3.0 Cabinet concluded at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in presence of the dignitaries from across the country and world, all eyes were on the new faces inducted in the Cabinet. The new Cabinet under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been balanced with inclusion of old and new names. While there was a lot of speculation regarding the demands posed by the alliance partners before the prime minister, the 33 new faces including 8 Cabinet ministers in the Modi 3.0 government included several names from the JDU, TDP, LJP and other allies of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Earlier in the day, the newly-elected Members of Parliament (MPs) had gathered at the prime minister’s residence at 7 Lok Kalyan Marg in Delhi, ahead of the swearing-in ceremony.

The leaders present at the meeting include Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari, Nirmala Sitharaman, Dr S Jaishankar, Dharmendra Pradhan, Ashwini Vaishnaw and Piyush Goyal, who were part of Modi 2.0. Others included BJP veteran Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Jyotiraditya Scindia, JDU leader Rajiv Ranjan Singh, HAM leader Jitan Ram Manjhi, RLD's Jayant Chaudhary, JDS leader HD Kumaraswamy, LJP (Ram Vilas) chief Chirag Paswan and Jitin Prasada.  

30 Cabinet Ministers Inducted in Modi 3.0 Cabinet

At the swearing-in ceremony, along with PM Modi, top political leaders from the alliance including Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari, JP Nadda, former- MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Nirmala Sitharaman, S Jaishankar among others also took oath as the ministers in the newly former Modi 3.0 Cabinet.

In the new Cabinet, over a dozen BJP MPs and other NDA allies leaders were sworn-in as the council of ministers. With BJP’s numbers dropping below the majority mark in the Lok Sabha elections, it now relies on its NDA allies to cross the magic figure of 272. It is, therefore, that the BJP tried to strike a balance with its alliance partners over ministerial berths.
