As a result, 37 people were thrown out compared to the old cabinet and 22 new faces were given a chance in the new cabinet. PM Modi has elected 57 ministers in his new cabinet. Of these, about a quarter of the ministers have been elected from three states of the country. These states are Maharashtra, Jharkhand and Haryana. 13 ministers were elected out of a total of 57 from these three states.
Why were ministers made from these states
This decision has been taken after hours of discussion in Modi-Shah. It is believed that this decision has been taken under a well thought out strategy. In fact, BJP has already started preparing for the next election. In fact, after Uttar Pradesh (9 ministers), the highest number of ministers being elected from Maharashtra (seven ministers) and giving Jharkhand and Haryana such prominence in the cabinet are seen in the elections of these three states. Actually, assembly elections of these three states are close. There are already BJP governments in all three states. In any case, the BJP will not want to lose these three states.
Nine from UP and seven ministers from Maharashtra
There are a total of 80 Lok Sabha seats in UP. BJP has won 61 seats and its ally Apna Dal (Sone Lal) has won two seats. Then only nine ministers were elected from here. Whereas in Maharashtra with 48 Lok Sabha seats, BJP won 23 and its ally Shiv Sena won 18 seats. But the high command inducted a total of seven ministers from here.

In Jharkhand, both tribal and non-tribal get a chance
The politics of Jharkhand is two important ones, tribal leaders and non-tribal leaders. After BJP won the assembly elections in 2014, Raghubar Das was made the first non-tribal CM of Jharkhand. Now again there is a call for elections in this state. In such a situation, PM Modi has given a message to this faction by giving a place in the cabinet to Arjun Munda, a former CM and coming from the tribal community. While reiterating Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi as a part of the cabinet, he has reiterated his commitment to the development of Jharkhand.
