Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The state got its much-awaited cabinet as 28 MLAs took oath as ministers at Raj Bhavan in Bhopal on Monday. Of total 28 MLAs, 18 are cabinet ministers, six of them will be given independent charges and four are Ministers of State.
Portfolio distribution is likely to take two to three more days.
BJP senior leaders like former union minister Prahlad Singh Patel, BJP National General Secretary and MLA from Indore Kailash ViJayvargiya, two-time MLA from Bhopal Krishna Gaur, former MP from Jabalpur, and current MLA Rakesh Singh were sworn in as ministers.
The BJP central leadership has crafted the state cabinet considering the caste equations in Madhya Pradesh, allotting a reasonable number of berths to OBC, SC/ST, and tribal candidates.
Similarly, the Yadav cabinet consists of leaders representing different regions of Madhya Pradesh. For instance, Dilip Jaiswal and Radha Singh represent the Vindhya region, while Nirmala Bhuria and Tulsi Silawat come from Indore-Malwa and Narayan Singh Kushwaha from Gwalior-Chambal.
