Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over induction of bureaucrats into his Council of Ministers, senior Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan today said politicians would now be reduced to “PR functionaries”. “Dearth of talent continue to haunt Modi Govt. Bureaucrats will govern & politicians will be reduced to PR functionaries,” the former Union minister said in a tweet. Chavan, who had served as the minister of state in the PMO under Manmohan Singh, said there was no induction of any leader with RSS background in today’s rejig. “No RSS faces in cabinet reshuffle. Expecting Ram Madhav, Vinay Sahastrabuddhe in the list of inductees,” he said in another tweet.

Observing that only BJP leaders were present at the swearing-in ceremony in Delhi, he said, “Incompetency or distrust with allies? Allies have to wait for another day.. Also failed to achieve North-South balance.” In the reshuffle, Modi inducted into his council former bureaucrats Raj Kumar Singh, Hardeep Singh Puri, K J Alphons Kannanthanam and ex-IPS Satyapal Singh.
