Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore gets independent charge of MIB

In a late night Cabinet reshuffle on May 14, 2018, Col. Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore has been assigned the independent charge as Minister of Information and Broadcasting. He is replacing Smriti Zubin Irani, who has been relieved of the post of I&B Minister. 

Irani will, however, continue to be in charge of the Textiles Ministry. 

The BJP Government’s tenure so far since 2014 has seen three different Ministers take charge of the MIB. Prior to Irani, Arun Jaitley and Venkaiah Naidu had held the Information and Broadcasting portfolio.
