Modi-bhakti helps Javadekar

Prakash Javadekar’s elevation to the Cabinet rank and shift to a Ministry of higher profile, that of Human Resources Development, have been largely attributed to his diligence, faster approvals of projects, a lower profile, and a generally affable persona, not many are aware another trait that stood him in good stead. Not only he appeared least interested in enhancing his own profile, he also strove very hard to promote Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Whomever he met, he ensured that the person got a copy of a booklet which had Modi’s views on climate change.
