Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today elavated to the cabinet rank

Suresh Prabhu has been mentoring me, directing me and taking care of me for the past 20 years.

As the Defence Minister, Sitharaman will be a member of the crucial Cabinet Committee on Security whose members include the Prime Minister, Home Minister, External Affairs Minister and the Finance Minister.

Piyush Goyal, who on Monday took office as Railway Minister, said that huge investments made in the railways in last three years will definitely lead to the development.

Both his parents have been associated with the BJP, with his father Late Vedprakash Goyal being the Union Minister of Shipping in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

Recalling his first days as the Power minister, Goyal said initially he had little knowledge of the sector and didn't know the "P of Power". "My colleagues and I will continue to run on those tracks", Goyal said.

He played a major role during the 2014 general elections in India which elevated the BJP to power.

"Goyalji is like my younger brother and now he will take over as new Railway Minister.

I am here to help him in whatever he needs, and I believe that everyone will support him as they did me", Prabhu said.

He had offered to step down after two train accidents in Uttar Pradesh last month, which were followed by two other derailments.
