New Delhi, May 28: It did not take huge feats for the new government to sit and talk on issues that rid India. The Cabinet is new, but the members knew what to discuss and talk about.

For instance, the Narendra Modi-led Cabinet immediately put the SIT in place to bring back the black money stashed in abroad. With that in hand, Narendra Modi had to spent almost the entire day went in meeting the SAARC delegates who had been invited for the swearing-in. Of course, we cannot ignore the important meetings that he had with the Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

But the top of the agenda was compensation for the families of the dead in the UP train accident.

Day 1 was already proving heavy for the new government as the allies had started bickering. For instance, Shiv Sena miffed and Anant Geete refused to accept heavy industries portfolio.

The MiG crash in Kashmir too was a concern for the defence ministry. Condoling the accident, Jaitley said that he would not entertain anything on changing the Army Chief.

Some of the other Cabinet ministers also made statements to begin with:

Railway Minister DV Sadananda Gowda: "Security of passengers is top priority"

Information and Broadcasting minister Prakash Javadekar: "No plans to control the media"

Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan: "Will consult global experts to improve healthcare policy"

MoS (PMO) Jitendra Singh: "Ready for debate on Article 370"

However, on an overall, the day was fruitful and all the ministers emerged happy with their resolutions.
