Later, Goyal held a meeting with the Railway Board Members.

Recalling his first days as the Power minister, Goyal said initially he had little knowledge of the sector and didn't know the "P of Power". "We all have to just follow his track", said Goyal.

Prabhu was shifted to the commerce and industry ministry, while Pradhan and Naqvi retained their portfolios of Oil and Gas and Minority Affairs respectively. Speaking after assuming charge of the ministry on Monday, an emotional Goyal said Prabhu has been like an elder brother and mentor to him for the last 20 years.

Nitin Gadkari, who was holding Road Transport and Highways and Shipping, will also head the Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Ministry.
