Several other ministers including Babul Supriyo, Debasree Chaudhuri, Rattan Lal Kataria, Sanjay Dhotre, Thawarchand Gehlot, Pratap Chandra Sarangi (MoS), and Ashwini Chaubey (MoS) have also tendered their resignation. The reshuffle follows a protracted review exercise by the PM and the BJP top brass in a series of meetings with Ministers. These were held in the wake of the devastating second Covid wave that has set off widespread criticism of the Government for the mismanagement of the crisis. This will be the first reshuffle in the Council of Ministers by Prime Minister Narendra Modi since he assumed charge for a second term in May 2019. The name of the new 43  members  are  given below:
