Description

Nirmala Sitharaman, who just took oath as the new Cabinet member, has been given the Defence Ministry portfolio, according to a report of PTI. Incidentally, she has become the first full-time woman defence minister of India and only the second woman to hold the crucial ministry after Indira Gandhi.

Modi, in his third Cabinet reshuffle today inducted 13 new ministers.

Jaitley has been handling the ministry after Manohar Parrikar quit to become the Goa's chief ..

Sitharaman's elevation was totally out of the blue as Nitin Gadkari's name was also in the vine for the post while others expected Jaitley to keep the post following his success in the Doklam crisis.
