Senior minister Gopal Rai was relieved of the charge of the Transport Department as sought by him on health grounds and the portfolio has now been given to his cabinet colleague Satyendar Jain.

Last week, Rai requested Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to relieve him from the responsibility of Transport Department on health grounds as he had recently undergone a major surgery.

Jain, who is known to be close to Kejriwal, already holds key portfolios of PWD, Health, Power and Home. The departments left with Rai now include Labour, Irrigation and Flood Control, General Administration Department (GAD), Development and Employment.
