Industry body CII today said the induction of new Ministers in the government will help address some of the issues in ease of doing business and facilitate investments.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inducted 19 new faces, including BJP leaders S S Ahluwalia, M J Akbar and Vijay Goel, while elevating Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar in the second expansion of his government ahead of political battles in Uttar Pradesh and other states.

“The addition of ministers would help in addressing some of the overarching issues in ease of doing business and facilitate investments,” CII Director General Chandrajit Banerjee said.

The second exercise by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in little more than two years since he took over in May 2014 saw a number a dalit and OBC leaders being given ministerial positions done apparently with an eye on assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand next year and Gujarat later.

“The Cabinet expansion reflects Prime Minister’s strong emphasis on development and priorities, and CII welcomes the focus on delivery and implementation,” Banerjee said.

“The Government has introduced several landmark policies, and the induction of new ministers will contribute to their success in boosting economic growth through better governance and results on the ground,” he added.
