Nitin Gadkari is undoubtedly the best minister in NDA 2.0(still miss parrikar tho)
He should line up for PM too for the well-being of nation.
He should be defence minister before PM as we need some one like him . Rajnath is good , but we need some one like Gadkari to improve the efficiency of DRDO , OFB and Shipyards

Parrikar succeeded to an extent cos he was an technical guy from IIT and had an idea how the industrial process worked. Other than that, whether he was a great visionary in terms of military doctrines, strategic thinking etc we never got to know.
Obviously Infra development is different than the military industrial bureaucracy.
Under Rajnath Singh, same importance is being provided to infra development with regards to military infrastructure in bases, roads, tunnels, basic safety gears etc though due to small budget.

I think an technocrat should be made Minister for Defence Production which takes care of OFB, HAL etc and DRDO labs except strategic ones should be bought under them. Gadkari is a PM material though sadly till Amit Shah is present his chances are bleak.

The only reason I said Gadkari for defence is improve the processes and rot in the whole defence manufacturing system (DPU specific) . I 100% agree that a technocrat or a successful CEO should lead the ministry of defence manufacturing.

Parrikar was eager to learn and he know the importance of the pending deals , he has cleared the deals which were stucked for years . The focus on the foot soldiers started during his time like Sig Sauer , and protective vests

In my opinion, the most "action"-competent + execution+results based folks like these should be key "action" cabinet ministers (like finance, defence, transport).

It is the sweetspot area for both focused leadership + action/competency etc.

PM role spends too much time/effort doing a "bit of everything" and lot of symbolic/media ops + foreign policy + security etc....compared to time to focus on key results with bureaucrat underlings on the key inner affairs of Indian economy.

Cultivating such meritocracy is almost impossible in PM role...he just goes by gut instinct etc for delegation here (among other factors influencing in realm of politics).

Definitely closer to political retirement (with full experience achieved)....competent proven ministers can look at PM role (as they have built up practical experience in delegation) as newer choices develop for the cabinet positions etc.
