New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a critic of the group of ministers of the Manmohan Singh era, has constituted eight Cabinet committees. Interestingly, Home Minister Amit Shah is in all the eight Cabinet committees but Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has found a place in only two.

 

PM Modi heads six out of eight committees. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has been included in six committees while Railway Minister Piyush Goyal is in five.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has started a large-scale preparation to deal with the weakening economy and increasing unemployment in the country. The government has reconstructed eight Cabinet committees for that purpose.

In this, the appointment committee of the Cabinet comprises PM Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. The Modi government has reconstructed these eight Cabinet committees:

  1. Appointments Committee of the Cabinet
  2. Cabinet Committee on Accession
  3. Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs,
  4. Cabinet Committee on Parliament Affairs,
  5. Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs,
  6. Cabinet Committee on Security
  7. Cabinet Committee on Investment and Growth
  8. Cabinet Committee on Employment and Skill Development

The government on Thursday announced the constitution of various Cabinet committees, including the one on economic affairs.

On Wednesday, the government had constituted committees on investment and growth to spur the economic growth, and on employment and skill development to deal with the issues of unemployment.

It was perhaps for the first time that the Cabinet committees on the two issues have been set up.

The key committee on security was also set up Wednesday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will the head of the Committee, and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will be its members.

The panel looks after the issues related to national security and foreign affairs.

Among the panels announced Thursday is the Appointments Committee of Cabinet (ACC) to be headed by the prime minister with Shah as the other member.

Shah will head the Cabinet Committee on Accommodation. Road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari, Sitharaman and Railway and Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal are its members.

Minister of State in PMO Jitendra Singh and Housing and Urban Affairs and Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Puri are special invitees of the Accommodation committee.
