Shri Manoj Sinha is the new Minister of State for Communications with independent charge as per the latest cabinet reshuffle. It seems that this is the first time that Communications have been given charge to a MoS. Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, present Communications Minister is the new Law Minister.

Shri Manoj Sinha is the 65th Communications Minister in independent India. Almost all the Prime Ministers have been in charge of Communications for brief periods. This is the first time that there is no Cabinet Minister for the important portfolio of Communications.

We welcome Shri Manoj Sinha and hope that he will try to improve the BSNL and the telecom services! Wish him all success!
