Rajnath Singh sworn in as minister in PM Modi’s cabinet for 3rd term

Rajnath Singh takes the oath of office as a minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet, marking his third term. As a senior BJP leader, Singh continues to play a crucial role in Modi’s administration.

Rajnath Singh, one of the senior-most leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), took the oath as a minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s new cabinet. This marks Singh’s third term in Modi’s cabinet, further solidifying his position as a key player in the government’s inner circle.

The swearing-in ceremony, held with all the grandeur befitting such an occasion, saw Rajnath Singh, dressed in his characteristic simplicity, affirm his commitment to serving the nation. As he took the oath of office, there was a palpable sense of continuity and stability that his presence brought to Modi’s administration. Singh’s extensive political experience and his previous tenures as Home Minister and Defence Minister make him an indispensable part of the cabinet.

Singh’s inclusion in the new cabinet is seen as a move to ensure that the government continues to benefit from his vast experience and deep understanding of national and international affairs. His role in shaping India’s defence policy and his efforts in internal security have been widely acknowledged, and his reappointment suggests that these areas will remain priorities for the Modi administration.

During his tenure as Defence Minister, Rajnath Singh has been instrumental in advancing several critical initiatives, including the push for self-reliance in defence production under the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan (Self-Reliant India Mission). He has also played a pivotal role in strengthening India’s military capabilities and addressing complex security challenges on the border.

In his previous role as Home Minister, Singh was a key figure in implementing policies aimed at enhancing internal security and managing counter-terrorism operations. His experience in handling these portfolios demonstrates his capability to manage critical aspects of national governance, which will be crucial as the government navigates the challenges ahead.

The decision to retain Singh in the cabinet is a testament to his enduring influence within the BJP and his effectiveness in governance. As one of the senior leaders of the party, Singh’s steady hand is expected to provide continuity and support to the government’s ambitious plans for India’s development.

His oath-taking ceremony was attended by a host of dignitaries, including senior BJP leaders and allies, who applauded his reappointment. Singh’s ability to command respect across the political spectrum makes him a unifying figure, capable of bridging gaps and fostering cooperation within the government and beyond.
