Modi informed Javadekar about his elevation in cabinet

New Delhi, July 5 (IANS) It was Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself who called up Prakash Javadekar and gave him the happy news of his upcoming elevation to the cabinet rank, a beaming Javadekar told newspersons after the swearing-in ceremony here on Tuesday.

Javadekar, Minister of State (Independent Charge) of Environment and Forests, was in Berlin for a Climate Change Conference when he was told by the Prime Minister to reach Delhi “immediately”.

“I was abroad when Prime Minister called up and told me about it. He asked me to reach Delhi immediately,” Javadekar told reporters at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The minister said he had no clue of his being elevated to the cabinet rank.

As Modi asked him to reach the national capital, Javadekar changed flights and arrived here.

“I was away abroad and there was no direct flight to Delhi from there, but I reached here by changing a flight from Abu Dhabi,” he said.
