FINANCE Minister Arun Jaitley seems to be upset with his junior ministers. He has no idea why Santosh Gangwar and Arjun Meghwal have been sent to the Finance Ministry, since they are more appropriate for the Law Ministry. Gangwar is a law graduate from Rohilkhand University while Meghwal is a promoted IAS officer who has a law degree, a masters in political science as also has an MBA from Philippines University. Maybe that is the reason why for international meetings on economic matters that Jaitley can’t attend himself, he prefers to send his officers rather than his ministers for state. A few days ago, there was an Economic Forum meeting in China, where Jaitley preferred to send Finance Secretary Shaktikanta Das instead of his junior ministers. It is worth noting that this is the same Shaktikanta Das who is being targeted by Swamy for some time now.
