New Delhi, July 12: M S Gill, who was dropped from the Union Cabinet today, today reacted philosophically saying he was comfortable without being a minister. “I am comfortable in my own skin. The rest is fluff. It comes and goes,” he said in his reaction to being dropped from the Cabinet.
Gill, a former bureaucrat, who rose to become the Chief Election Commissioner, joined the Congress party after demitting the Constitutional office to become a Rajya Sabha member in 2004.
He became Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs in UPA I and was elevated as Cabinet Minister in 2009. In the last reshuffle in January this year, he was shifted to Statistics and Programme Implementation. PTI
