Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said – One is going to be auctioned and the other has been given the burden of selling it. It is worth noting that recently the Modi cabinet has been expanded. This was the first cabinet expansion of the second term of the Modi government. In this, BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP from Madhya Pradesh, Jyotiraditya Scindia, has been given the important responsibility of the Ministry of Civil Aviation by making him a minister for the first time.
A total of 43 ministers have been sworn in with 36 new faces in this cabinet, while 7 ministers were promoted. After this, now the total number of ministers in the Modi cabinet has increased to 78.
Earlier, Jyotiraditya Scindia had earlier left the Congress and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party. The Kamal Nath government of the state fell after he joined the BJP and broke the Madhya Pradesh Congress MLAs. After that a new government was formed in the state under the leadership of Shivraj Singh Chouhan. At that time Jyotiraditya Scindia had accused the Congress party of ignoring him.
