After assuming the charge of steel ministry, Scindia tweeted: "As per the direction of Prime Minister (Narendra Modi), I assumed the charge as minister of steel. I will try my best to discharge this new responsibility with the blessings of all the well wishers."
In another tweet, Scindia said: "Today, took the additional charge of steel ministry from RCP Singh. I will do my best to fulfill the aspirations of the country by discharging this responsibility given by the top leadership to full potential."
It was learnt that Scindia also held back to back meeting with ministry officials.
