In a very recent surprise cabinet reshuffle, Smriti Irani has been removed from the post of minister of information and broadcasting. The Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Rajyavardhan Rathore who was a junior minister in the I&B Ministry has been given a promotion.
Irani's nearly one-year tenure in the I and B Ministry was mired in controversies and she was replaced by her deputy Rathore who has now been given the charge of the key portfolio.
An official release from the press secretary to the president Ram Nath Kovind informed of the same, among other change in portfolios within the Union Cabinet.
