Under Amit Shah, this is how the Ministry for Home Affairs is being run


New Delhi, June 21: There have been some sweeping changes made in the Union Home Minister, after Amit Shah took charge. An extremely crucial portfolio, which oversees the national security of India, Shah delegated work of the ministry's 22 divisions to his two deputies, G Kishan Reddy and Nityanand Rai.

The Intelligence Bureau would report to Shah. Reddy on the other hand has been handed over charge of Jammu and Kashmir, North-East, cyber security, union territory and counter radicalisation. This is for the first time that North-East and Jammu and Kashmir are being handled by the same minister of state.
