New Delhi: Giriraj Singh assumed charge as the Minister of State for Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) on Tuesday.

Welcoming him, Cabinet Minister for MSME Kalraj Mishra said he was confident that the ministry will greatly benefit from the experience of Singh who had been a Minister in the Bihar Government.

Singh, a 62-year-old BJP MP from Nawada, is also one of the early Modi loyalists in the party and often took on the then Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar despite being a member of his Cabinet.
