New Delhi: Newly appointed cabinet minister Kirti Vardhan Singh on Tuesday assumed office as Minister of State (MoS) in the Ministry of External Affairs and Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change in the newly formed National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government at the Centre.

Speaking with ANI, Singh said, "Prime Minister Narendra Modi has provided me with a big responsibility which I will carry out in the best possible manner.

Kirti Vardhan Singh On Opposition's Criticism

On the opposition's criticism that the NDA government would not last long, Singh said, "It's very common for them to give such statements. The opposition had never a constructive thought. We have witnessed the opposition's behaviour in the last decade, how they disrupted the parliament and never discussed fruitfully on any matter."

Slamming the INDIA bloc for lacking in unity, Singh said, "I want to ask the opposition that if we assume that our government fails, do they have the courage to tell us the name of their PM candidate? They haven't been able to speak about this."

About Kirti Vardhan Singh

Singh has been representing the Gonda constituency in Parliament for the past four consecutive terms. In the 2024 Lok Sabha elections Singh defeated Shreya Verma of the Samajwadi Party from the Gonda seat by 46,224 votes. Singh was sworn into the 71-member Council of Minister of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday evening in a ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhawan.

He was a member of the 12th and 14th Lok Sabha as a Samajwadi Party candidate. In March 2014, he resigned from the SP and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party and contested the 2014 parliamentary elections, again from Gonda, where he was elected in the 16th and 17 Lok Sabhas.
