Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal has been dropped from the Modi Cabinet. Sources told India TV that he has been relieved from the Education Ministry just ahead of the Cabinet expansion.
Pokhriyal, a Lok Sabha MP from Uttarakhand's Haridwar parliamentary seat, is among others who have been relieved from the Modi government ahead of the much-awaited expansion which comes close on the heels of the completion of the NDA government’s seven years in office. This would be the first expansion of the Council of Ministers since NDA's return to power in 2019.
