New council of Ministers – Cabinet reshuffled on 28 Oct, 2012

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh new team takes charge today, i.e., 29 Oct 2012, Monday; a day after Singh reshuffled his cabinet, in what he hoped would be the last time before the 2014 polls.

PM Manmohan Singh, 80, is the oldest member of the council, while Pilot, 35, is the youngest minister.

“It is a combination of youth and experience,” Singh said after the reshuffle.

He also added that he “doesn’t see” the possibility of an “early election” but admitted that “the road ahead is full of challenges”.

The next general election is due in May 2014 – 18 months from now.

After a long gap, the railways – a sector crying for reforms – is back with the Congress and the new minister, Pawan Bansal, quickly announced that Indian Railways will participate actively in the reforms process and passenger fares may be hiked to make rail transportation “viable”.

While the reshuffle cheered many, among those who may find it difficult to digest are Jaipal Reddy, Vilas Muttemwar and V Narayanaswamy.

Manmohan Singh’s team as it looks now:
