No work­out?

Governance Now - - BRIEFINGS -

When the ganga re­ju­ve­na­tion port­fo­lio was taken away from union min­is­ter uma Bharti and handed over to Nitin gad­kari, re­ports emerged al­leg­ing Bharti’s poor per­for­mance be­hind the cab­i­net de­ci­sion. How­ever, talk­ing to re­porters shortly af­ter the reshuf­fle, Bharti dis­missed the re­ports and said that the PM never pulled her up for her work and that he had scolded her only twice in her three years. “Lekin woh ek hi baat par padi hain ki main bahut moti ho gayi hoon aur mu­jhe apna weight kam karna hain. Iske alava mu­jhe aur kisi baat par dant nahin padi. (But it was only for one thing, that i had gained weight and i had to lose it. Be­sides this, i was not scolded for any­thing),” she said.

Bharti was shifted from the min­istry of water re­sources, river de­vel­op­ment and ganga re­ju­ve­na­tion and moved to the min­istry of drink­ing water and san­i­ta­tion.
