Arjun Ram Meghwal promoted as Minister of Law and Justice, Rijiju moves to Earth Sciences
NEW DELHI: In a surprising turn of events, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju was dismissed from his post as Minister of Justice. Rijiju, known for his controversial statements about the judiciary, was given new responsibilities. In a statement issued by Rashtrapati Bhawan, it was announced that Rijiju would serve as Minister of Earth Sciences.
The decision to remove Rijiju from the Justice Department comes amid growing concerns about his statements, which are often viewed as undermining the judiciary’s independence and integrity. His remarks drew criticism from various quarters, including legal experts and opposition politicians. The move to relocate Rijiju to another ministry appears to be an attempt to address these concerns and create a more conducive environment for the judicial system.
Rijiju will be replaced by former federal minister of state, Arjun Ram Meghwal, as head of the Justice Ministry. Megwal, a veteran politician with a legal background, is tasked with running the Ministry of Justice independently. The grant underscores the government’s intention to bring stability and expertise to its critical portfolio.
The Ministry of Justice plays a central role in the formulation and implementation of the country’s legal policy. Responsible for drafting laws, providing legal advice to governments, and overseeing the functioning of the judiciary. Megwal’s appointment marks a renewed focus on strengthening the legal framework and ensuring the proper administration of the judiciary.
The decision to appoint Rijiju to the Ministry of Earth Sciences reflects the Government’s recognition of his competence and the need for effective leadership in this field. The Ministry of Earth Sciences is responsible for dealing with issues related to climate change, meteorology, oceanography, seismology among others. His experience as a Union Minister in various capacities makes him a well-suited candidate to address the challenges associated with these areas.
