New Delhi : When Narendra Modi took oath as Prime Minister for the third consecutive time, there were many political messages in it. Along with this, some concrete signals were also given at the level of governance. The biggest political message that Modi gave in his third term was that now he will not take any big risk. Probably this time he will work in a changed style. BJP remained far from majority on its own.

The PM did not take a big risk and relied more on his tried and tested names. Earlier, speculations were being made that Narendra Modi could form a completely new team in his third term. He could give a new team at the government level. But, political compulsion was seen in the swearing-in of 71 ministers. For example, 9 ministers were made in Uttar Pradesh. Two of them are from the Rajput community. Similarly, an attempt was made to woo the Jat community in Rajasthan. BJP's performance in these states was average. In Madhya Pradesh, trust was shown on tribal faces. The PM gave a big message that there will be a lot of pressure on the ministers at the governance level from the very first day. After 71 ministers are made, the scope of adding new ministers to the government will be almost negligible. According to the rules, 81 ministers can be made in the government. In such a situation, if Modi makes changes in the future, it will be at the cost of the existing ministers.

14 names repeated in 10 years

In the 10 years of rule, there were only 14 ministers who remained ministers in all three terms of PM Modi. The names that were common in all three terms are – Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari, Nirmala Sitharaman, Piyush Goyal, Jitendra Singh, Rao Indrajit Singh, Mansukh Mandaviya, Kiren Rijiju, Sarbananda Sonowal, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Arjun Ram Meghwal, Anupriya Patel, Hardeep Puri and Dharmendra Pradhan.
