Minister of Earth Sciences Kiren Rijiju has assumed office. Rijiju’s official title has changed from “Minister of Law and Justice” to “Minister of Earth Sciences” as of yesterday.
It’s inevitable that the opposition will critique me; opponents speaking out against me is nothing new.
If the opposition doesn’t criticise him, then how can he possibly be criticised, Rijiju jokes. “This shifting is not a punishment, this is the plan of the government, this is the vision of PM Modi,” Rijiju said after assuming his new position as minister of earth sciences.
