7 women in Modi’s cabinet

Dilli: 7 women took oath as ministers in the Modi government and Sushma Swaraj, tipped to be the external affairs minister, would be a member of the all-powerful Cabinet Committee on Security {CCS}. PM and ministers of home, defence, finance and external affairs constitute the CCS. Najma Heptulla {74}, a RS member since 1980 and lone Muslim is the eldest woman minister while actress-turned-politician Smriti Irani {38} is the youngest. Uma Bharti, Maneka Gandhi and Shiromani Akali Dal’s Harsimrat Kaur Badal are other cabinet ministers. BJP’s Nirmala Sitharaman, not an MP, is minister of state with independent charge. 16th LS has highest number of women members -61- in history.
