Yesterday Rastrapati Bhawan had evidenced most awaited reshuffle of MODI cabinet. After completing 40% of his tenure it was expected that Prime Minister will bring some changes in his cabinet. Where 19 get the entry, 5 faces the exit route, few got promotions while some got demotions. With this reshuffle PM given clear message to ministers, that they will be rewarded only for their work and not for their controversies. It is evidenced that PM was not happy with the working of few ministers. The most surprising change is seen in HRD Ministry where Smriti Irani is replaced by Prakash Javadekar. It is being considered that Political stature of Smriti Irani have been sacked by PM as she invited lots of controversies being HRD Minister. It was alleged that she had mishandled JNU and Hyderabad university row. This reshuffle is also being done upcoming UP elections taking into consideration. Three MPs from UP got chance to reserve their seat in ministry.

Here a clear message given by PM to his ministers to not to take him for granted. Nobody even Arun Jaitely, Rajnath Singh and Shushma Swaraj, was aware of this massive changes.
