After Rudy, Uma Bharti resigns from Union Cabinet
August 31, 2017  23:01
Uma Bharti, the Cabinet Minister for Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, has resigned from Modi's Cabinet on health grounds. 

The development comes shortly after it was reported that Rajiv Pratap Rudy had also resigned as minister of state skill development & entrepreneurship (Independent Charge). 

The resignations come amid rumours of a Cabinet reshuffle. 

The reshuffle is due because of the vacancies that have been created due to the sudden demise of environment minister Anil Madhav Dave and the return of former defence minister Manohar Parrikar to Goa state politics. The election of M Venkaiah Naidu as vice-president also deprived the cabinet of a key minister.
