Smriti Irani is back in the big league of Modi ministers: The curious case of BJP’s star politician
In July 2016, he left the Ministry of Human Resources Development (HRD) and was in charge of the Ministry of Textile Industry. Narendra Modi’s decision to reduce Smriti Irani’s portfolio has been described by many as the surprise degradation of a leader considered close to the prime minister.
Almost exactly one year after his downgrade, Irani, 41, is back in the big league. The television actor, became a politician, received the additional costs of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting M Venkaiah Naidu then resigned the position to dispute the vice president.
When PM Modi has decided to introduce Prakash Javadekar instead of Smriti Irani as Minister of Defense of Human Rights in July, many said he intended to keep the government away from the unnecessary controversy Allah had initiated during his stay.
Despite losing the Lok Sabha elections in 2014 at the top of the order against Congress Vice President, Rahul Gandhi Amethi Uttar Pradesh, Irani received an important ministry to take care only of his popularity within the BJP.
As the youngest cabinet minister in Modi, Irani was able to join one controversy or the other.
