Giriraj Singh, who represents Nawada (Bihar) Parliamentary constituency in the 16th Lok Sabha, has taken charge as minister of state (independent charge) for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). Singh, who was earlier minster of state for MSMEs, was given independent charge of the ministry in the latest Cabinet reshuffle ahead of 2019 polls. 
Soon after taking charge, Singh said that he will strive forward to increase employment under MSMEs and ensure that MSMEs do not face any hurdle in conducting their business. He also said that he will take forward the work left over by his predecessor and bring it to its logical conclusion.
Singh, who is very active on social media sites and in promoting khadi and other MSME sectors vigorously, has served as co-operative minister from 2005-2010 and animal husbandry minister from 2010 to 2013 in the Bihar Cabinet.
Kalraj Mishra, who is over 75 years of age, had resigned earlier as MSMEs minister. He said that he was satisfied with the work done by his ministry during his stint and hopes that his successor will finish the pending works and fulfil the dream of the Prime Minister. (RKS)
