The Home Minister India Desperately Needed February 17, 2016 .

The Home Ministry is an extraordinarily significant Ministry in the Indian Context, primarily because it is concerned with the most basic of State Craft that is protection of its citizens from the internal and the external enemies. Off late India had been devoid of capable Home Ministers at the Union level. The greatest low being appointment of Sushil Kumar Shinde as the Union Home Minister for a person who had served as Governor which is usually considered as retirement from active politics and for his extraordinary stint as the Power Minister when there was the greatest Grid Failure in the history of Independent India even as the country reached a standstill in the true sense of the term.
