New Delhi: M S Gill, who was dropped
from the Union Cabinet on Tuesday, reacted philosophically
saying he was comfortable without being a minister.
"I am comfortable in my own skin. The rest is fluff.
It comes and goes," he said in his reaction to being dropped
from the Cabinet.

Gill, a former bureaucrat, who rose to become the
Chief Election Commissioner, joined the Congress party after
demitting the Constitutional office to become a Rajya Sabha
member in 2004.
He became Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs in
UPA I and was elevated as Cabinet Minister in 2009. In the
last reshuffle in January this year, he was shifted to
Statistics and Programme Implementation.
