Aaj Ki Baat: For first time in India, all 22 ministers in a state dropped, all 24 are newcomers

A brand new team has taken over the reins in Gujarat, with not just a new chief minister but an entire cabinet that's fresh. Out of the 24 inducted on Thursday, 21 have become ministers for the first time.
