Digvijay Singh tweeted, "Why so much excitement about Cabinet Expansion? Modi doesn't require a Cabinet. His is a ONE MAN CABINET ! Ask Rajnath Ji and Gadkari Ji!"

Congress today took potshots at Narendra Modi’s ministry expansion saying the inclusion of BJP leader Giriraj Singh was a “crisp slap” by the Prime Minister to secularism.

The party said that the expansion was “far more” of caste, geography and less on merit.

Singh’s inclusion in the government is a “crisp slap by Modi to secularism and inclusion”, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said.

Priyanka Chaturvedi, a Congress leader and panelist tweeted, “Am certain the way things are going Giriraj Singh will take charge as MoS MEA, to facilitate all Modi haters to move to Pakistan. Strategic.”

Singh had earlier this year made a controversial statement that those opposing Modi should go to Pakistan for which he was also pulled up by the party leadership.

Congress General Secretary and in-charge of party’s Communication Department, Ajay Maken tweeted,”Took 6 MONTHS for Full Time Defense/Security, Power, Rural Development, Surface Transport, Environment #ModiKeMantri OR Wait Who knows even now?”

Referring to the Supreme Court’s order that the Prime Minister and Chief Ministers should desist from appointing tainted people as ministers, Maken tweeted, “27 Aug SC Decision-Expected 13 Tainted Min removal But New Tainted Min added- Affidavit shows 23 cases. Modi Ji What about #SwachhPolitics?”

Congress leader Digvijay Singh tweeted, “Why so much excitement about Cabinet Expansion? Modi doesn’t require a Cabinet. His is a ONE MAN CABINET ! Ask Rajnath Ji and Gadkari Ji!”

Singhvi also said, “The Sunday shuffle, if numerically analysed, has far more of caste & geography & far less of merit. To be fair, Cong also sometimes did same”.
