Bollywood Cabinet - Vinod Khanna and Shatrughan Sinha in!

Looks like the bOllywood bug has bitten our politicians.

Shatrughan Sinha and Vinod Khanna become ministers!

Chekc this out -

12 new ministers, younger party

NEW DELHI: In a major mid-term Cabinet reshuffle on Monday, Jaswant Singh and Yashwant Sinha swapped places as new finance and external affairs ministers respectively.


Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, thus, gave his government its seventh ‘‘facelift’’.


Two Bollywood veterans were also included, with Shatrughan Sinha joining as a Cabinet minister in-charge of health and family welfare and Vinod Khanna inducted as minister of state for tourism and culture.


Also inducted was Jana Krishnamurthy, who quit as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief over the weekend. He gets law and justice.


The much-speculated induction of Trinamul Congress’ Mamata Banerjee failed to materialise, after she was denied her preferred railway portfolio, but there was still hope of her being persuaded, Vajpayee told mediapersons after the swearing-in ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan.


Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah did not figure in the changes, indicating that the government was still evolving its Kashmir policy ahead of the crucial assembly elections.


However, his son Omar — despite his angry outbursts last week — retains the external affairs portfolio as one of the two ministers of state. Digvijay Singh is the other minister in the foreign office, shifted from the railways.


Delhi got a boost in Sahib Singh Verma, a former chief minister, who got a Cabinet rank and the labour portfolio. Balasaheb Vikhe Patil, a Shiv Sena veteran from Maharashtra, was promoted to the Cabinet rank as in-charge of heavy industry and public enterprises. He succeeds fellow-Sena member Manohar Joshi, elevated as Lok Sabha Speaker last month.


Earlier in the day, President K R Narayanan accepted the resignations of Venkaiah Naidu — who is the new BJP chief — Arun Jaitley, C P Thakur, V Dhananjay Kumar, Maneka Gandhi and Muni Lall. Jaitley is tipped for a senior party post. Venkaiah’s rural development portfolio goes to Shanta Kumar. Sharad Yadav is the new minister in charge of consumer affairs, food and public distribution earlier held by Shanta Kumar.


Among the new inductees, N T Shanmugham, who held Cabinet rank earlier, gets independent charge of food processing industries.


Of new ministers of state, Nikhil Kumar Choudhary from Bihar gets agro and rural industries, Shripad Yesso Naik from Karnataka gets civil aviation, Anant Geethe of Shiv Sena gets finance, Basangouda R Patil gets textiles, Sanjay Paswan from Bihar gets communications and information technology, along with Sumitra Mahajan, an earlier inductee shifted from HRD. A K Murthy gets railways, S Thirunavukkarasar from Tamil Nadu has got shipping.


Of the portfolio changes, Ravi Shankar Prasad gets law in addition to his earlier charge coal and mines. Tapan Sikdar from West Bengal gets chemical and fertiliser and O Rajagopal gets urban development, in addition to parliamentary affairs.


While Sahib Singh Verma represents outer Delhi in the Lok Sabha, Shatrughan Sinha and Krishnamurthy are from Rajya Sabha. Vikhe Patil is a veteran Lok Sabha member from Maharashtra. Of the ministers of state, Nikhil Choudhary, Sripad Naik, Gouda Patil, Paswan, Murthy and Thirunavukkarasar are first-timers in the Lok Sabha.


With Monday’s expansion and resignations, the strength of the Union council of ministers goes up to 78. Of these, 32 are of Cabinet rank, six ministers of state with independent charge and 40 ministers of state.

I hope that they do something. Atleast develop tourism, have some private companies come in and create theme parks like Universal Studios.

Some facts about our heroes :D

Check some old pics of our heroes

Shatrughan "ShotGun" Sinha began his career as a villain in small-budget movies. His first big hit was Kalicharan. His other films include Kala Patthar, Kranti, Khudgarz and Mere Apne, in which he co-starred with Vinod Khanna. He joined the BJP when it was in Opposition, and has been one of the party's main crowd pullers.


Vinod Khanna, one-time Bollywood hearththrob, actually began his career as a villain in the film Man ka Meet. He went on to become a top hero with films like Hera Pheri, Qurbani, Khoon Pasina and Parvarish. After a stint at the Osho Rajneesh ashram, Vinod returned to filmdom and also joined politics.
