New Delhi: Prakash Javadekar, who was shifted to the Human Resource Development Ministry from Environment and Forests in Tuesday's reshuffle of the Union Cabinet, has described the Narendra Modi-led team as “crazy boys” and of “doers”.
Speaking to NDTV news channel, Javadekar – who replaced Smriti Irani at the HRD Ministry – said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a development agenda and his ministers share the same passion and zeal which their leader has.
Javadekar, who described Modi's Cabinet as Team India, said it is (the team) passionate about development as well as sustainable development.
The team is “very capable”and is of "doers", he said, adding “we are 'crazy boys' in that way".
Javadekar said as education minister, he would hold consultations with "everybody", including Smriti Irani.
Inviting ideas and suggestions, the minister said his “doors are open to all".
While stating he would build upon the initiatives taken by his predecessor, Javadekar rejected the claims of education being “saffronised” under the BJP government.
“Saffronisation? There is no such thing," he said.
