Ravi Shankar Prasad takes charge of Telecom Ministry; returns for second innings in IT, Law

BJP veteran Ravi Shankar Prasad's stature in the Modi 2.0 government just got bigger as he has regained the telecom ministry, adding it to his heavyweight portfolio of IT, and Law and Justice.
"I am grateful to the PM for entrusting me with such responsibility. In telecom, I will first hold meetings to take a long-term view, and also see how a greater synergy can be driven in IT and communications," Prasad told reporters after being named the Minister for the three portfolios.
Prasad is expected to take charge in his ministries on June 3. On his radar will be pushing the draft data protection legislation and strengthening the rules around social media. In telecom, an industry which is in throes of financial distress but, at the same time, rolling up its sleeves for 5G play in the global arena, Prasad's top priorities will be to find ways and means to set the sector back to its growth trajectory.
