Hitesh Agarwal from IIM Bangalore(Class: 2012-14) assign key ministries if he becomes the prime minister to the following:

Finance: Arun Shourie. He has a doctorate in Economics and is a World Bank veteran. He has a long association with the economic policies of India.

Commerce & Industry: Subramanian Swamy, a PhD in Economics from Harvard with a wealth of experience as Planning Commission member and Chairman of the Commission on Labour Standards and International Trade.

Highways: Ravi Shankar Prasad. India badly needs better road infrastructure if it wants to be in the same league as China. A politician of Prasad's stature is needed in this ministry.

Civil Aviation: Rajiv Pratap Rudy, A former civil aviation minister and a pilot himself, he has the best credentials for this important ministry.

Arun Jaitley, a Commerce graduate from SRCC, and a top contender for the finance ministry should find a place at least in the Railways, the only other ministry that has its own budget session.
