President accepts Gajapathi Raju, YS Chowdary's resignations

Y.S. Chowdary was the Union Minister of State for Science, Technology & Earth Sciences and Raju was the Civil Aviation Minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Cabinet.

Exhorting India's commitment to free trade, Minister of Commerce and Industry and Civil Aviation Suresh Prabhu said on Saturday that the US' decision to increase tariffs on certain steel and aluminium products was an "unfortunate development". Meanwhile when speaking to media, YS Chowdary and Ashok Gajapathi Raju stated that they are still with NDA and have only tendered their resignations to their ministries. As Civil Aviation Minister, Prabhu's most pressing concern will be the disinvestment of national carrier Air India.

In his current ministry, this boils down to the fight to pull in investments in the last leg of the government's tenure for the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP). However, he admitted that clock can't be reversed back and hence in order to move forward, he demanded the Union Government to fulfill its promises made to Andhra Pradesh including Special Category Status.

The Commerce and Industry Minister highlighted the opportunity for partnerships between India and France across various areas.

Following the Prabhu resign, Piyush Goyal was appointed as the Railways Minister. The TDP ministers had submitted their resignations to PM Modi on Thursday which were forward to the President.
