Initially left out of all key Cabinet Committees except two of the eight constituted yesterday (Thursday, June 6), Defence Minister Rajnath Singh was late in the evening added to four more, including two new panels formed Thursday to spur growth and job creation.

The reworking of the panels came after Singh’s exclusion attracted much attention and speculation since he was seen as number two in the government when he took oath immediately after Prime Minister Narendra Modi when the government was sworn in.

Home Minister Amit Shah, who was sworn-in after Singh, is part of all 10 panels. This raised question over a new pecking order in the government with Shah perceived to be the de facto number two.

By convention, the person who takes oath right after the PM is considered the number two in the government, and presides over the Cabinet and the political affairs committee in the absence of the prime minister. Singh was not a part of this committee in the list released earlier.

After the amended composition, Singh will also be a part of Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs, Cabinet Committee on Investment & Growth as well as Cabinet Committee on Employment & Skill Development.
