Our tendency to remain silent while Bakis run rampant with their propaganda seems to transcend governments and ruling parties.

Nitin Gadkari and Piyush Goyal seem to be the go-to ministers in Modi sarkaar. A ministry that's not pulling it's weight or not performing to expectations, hand it over to one of them.

I would not be surprised to see if either or both of them take on additional charges down the line.
