Joshi is presently the surface transport minister and had earlier held the additional charge of railway ministry when Mukul Roy quit after Trinamool Congress left the UPA- II government.

Sibal is presently the communications and information technology minister.

While Bansal's nephew was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for allegedly taking a bribe for the appointment of a member of the Railway Board, Ashwani Kumar has come under attack in the Supreme Court for vetting the CBI report on the allocation of coal blocks.
