Twenty-eight Ministers, who joined the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government in Madhya Pradesh, were administered the oath of office and secrecy by Governor Anandiben Patel at Raj Bhawan in Bhopal on Thursday. Notably, this is the second cabinet expansion since Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan returned to the helm of state affairs on March 23. He had earlier only inducted five ministers in the cabinet in April. A dozen ministers who took oath in MP’s cabinet expansion are loyalists of Jyotiraditya Scindia.

Also, it was Jyotiraditya Scindia’s exit from Kamalnath led Congress government in Madhya Pradesh that led to the falling of Kamalnath’s govt. 22 MLA’s of Kamalnath’s cabinet turned rebellious towards the govt. Two former Congress MLAs Tulsi Silawat and Govind Singh Rajput were also inducted along with 5 ministers in the initial expansion of Chouhan’s cabinet in April.
