Smriti Irani gets I&B ministry, Tomar given urban development

New Delhi: Following the resignation tendered by Union minister Venkaiah Naidu from the council of ministers on Monday night, PM Modi on Tuesday made Smriti Irani information and broadcasting minister and Narendra Singh Tomar housing and urban development minister.

The additional charge of the Ministry of I&B has been given to Smriti Irani

Both these ministries were held by Naidu before he resigned following the NDA naming him its vice presidential nominee.

“M Venkaiah Naidu has resigned from his ministerial responsibilities. The additional charge of the Ministry of I&B has been given to Smriti Irani,” Modi tweeted.

“Additional charge of Moud_India (Ministry of Urban Development) has been given to Tomar,” he said.

Irani already heads the Textile Ministry, while Tomar is in charge of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj.

After Naidu’s candidature was announced on Monday, it was expected that a reshuffle would take place after the end of the monsoon session of Parliament next month.
