Things you should know about two new ministers!
The Indian government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has just taken the decision which will not only be remembered for generations to come but has restored the faith of lots of people in women empowerment in India. Giving a huge rise to the sense of safety among Indian women.
Nirmala Sitharaman, who formerly served as a Minister of State Finance and Corporate Affairs under the Finance Ministry has now become the second Indian woman to take control of the Indian Armed Forces by working as the Defence Minister of India.
The Twitteratis are breaking the internet and showing all their love for Modi government on social media for considering this wildly insane decision, as we read; this will set the new benchmark in the example of women empowerment in India.
Let's have a look!
Chief Minister of Goa, Manohar Parrikar took to Twitter and cheered for Nirmala as the new Defence Minister of India. He said, "Many congratulations to @nsitharaman Ji on becoming India's next & first full-time woman Defence Minister. Wish her all the best."
The Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, Kiran Bedi congratulated Nirmala Sitharaman on her elevated post in the ministry. Kiran pointed out in her tweet that Nirmala is a woman of impeccable integrity+acumen.
J&K politician, Omar Abdullah looked more than happy and delighted to know that Indian Armed Forces will be lead by a woman.
And said, "A highly deserved responsibility. Congratulations & all the very best for your new assignment @nsitharaman."
The actor expressed his feelings and proudly shared the picture of Nirmala Sitharaman by quoting, "A woman #DefenceMinister is one of the biggest signs of #WomenEmpowerment in any country #NirmalaSitharaman #CabinetReshuffle."
While some people wished her luck in advance as soon she'll be handling the much-complicated relationship of India with its neighbouring countries like China and Pakistan.
Another epic decision taken by the Indian government includes former Olympic medalist of 2004, a professional shooter of India, Rajyavardhan. The sportsman turned politician will be leading the sports ministry, which means this will be the first time when sports department will actually be lead by someone who belongs to the sports.
Most of the Indians have welcomed these two decisions taken by the Indian government and Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. Also with these two decisions, India now has three women leading the most important ministries of India.
That's all, folks!
