Good to see that they've created a new ministry for Ganga Rejunivation. I hope Uma Bharti will do a good job.

By the way, I'm quite impressed to see SIT being formed on the very first day of the cabinet being formed. Looks like we're on to something. I just hope we ultimately get the black money back. 😀

During Vajpayee government Congress Oppose for FDI and now during Congress government BJP did the same. So yeah in India Opposition party actually follows the meaning of the word.
Nirmala Sitharaman - Minister of commerce and Industry indicated that NDA will stick up to the plan of not allowing FDI in MBR(Multi brand retail) as it will affect All traders and farmers. She also added that her important priority is to create jobs for Skilled, semi skilled and unskilled youths.
Former Government UPA has allowed FDI in MBR but holded due to pressure from inside and opposition . Note that UK firm Tesco is the only company to be cleared for investment in India.
