New Delhi: The controversy that had erupted over the number two position in the Union Cabinet after Pranab Mukherjee became the President has been put to rest. After the recent Cabinet reshuffle, the PMO office website carries a list of names of ministers that shows A K Antony at number two position.

Interestingly, after the war between Sharad Pawar and Antony for the number two spot in the Cabinet broke out, the page carrying the names of the list of ministers was removed from the PMO website. However, the list has again been put up on the website that shows Antony on the number two position. 

Meanwhile, the recent cabinet reshuffle bore the stamp of Rahul Gandhi with the Prime Minister also playing a key role. Those close to the Prime Minister were promoted and given plum ministries whereas Rahul Gandhi’s close aides got themselves ministerial berths.
