"We are especially thrilled that the Human Resource Minister has been replaced.

"We have been able to work with all previous Human Resource Minister except the axed minister (Sivakumar)," he said.

Arutchelvan also lauded Anwar's move to reshuffle the Cabinet, which indicates that the Prime Minister has listened to his critics.
