Cabinet reshuffle pathetic: BJP

Last Updated: Tuesday, July 31, 2012 - 22:46

New Delhi: BJP on Tuesday described the minor Cabinet reshuffle as "pathetic" and questioned the credibility and competence of new Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde and Finance Minister P Chidambaram.

"This change is pathetic. It is a clear case of talent deficit. P Chidambaram`s role has been questionable as the Finance Minister. There are allegations against his family," BJP`s chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said, adding that the UPA lacks the commitment for change.

Alleging that "good governance" is not on the agenda of the Congress-led UPA, Prasad took a dig at Shinde saying that it is ironical that the former Union Power Minister has been moved to Home Ministry on a day when grid failures were reported in the country.

In a minor reshuffle, Chidambaram was today made the Union Finance Minister, while Corporate Affairs Minister M Veerappa Moily was given the additional charge of Power Ministry.
