Brahmins representation in the newly formed Union Cabinet is quite considerable. After getting elected for the second term Prime Minister Narendra Modi seems to have given much thought while forming the new cabinet of ministers. Brahmins representation in the Union Cabinet in the portfolios that can be considered influential is definitely a take away.
Nine of the 25 new cabinet ministers are Brahmins, who are at the top of India’s tenacious caste hierarchy. Nine Brahmin leaders have found place in the Union cabinet, including Nitin Gadkari, Nirmala Sitharaman, Mahendranath Pandey etc.
Presence of nine Brahmin leaders with cabinet rank is being seen as a strong message to the community, which has strongly supported the party despite perceived reservations.
Even otherwise the fact can not be ignored that the Union Cabinet this time is inclusive of all representations of the society. With his slogan Sabhka Saat Sabka Vishwas PM Modi has definitely given a lot of thought while considering and finalizing the names in his Union Cabinet of Ministers.
