A shuffle

The move to divest Smriti Irani of the portfolio of Information and Broadcasting is no surprise (“Rathore replaces Irani as I&B Minister”, May 15). It is intriguing how the Prime Minister initially chose her to head the HRD Ministry even though her mettle to mentor such a key portfolio was not well-established.

It appears that she needs better exposure to the nuances of handling ministerial affairs.
