LUCKNOW: Senior BJP leader Uma Bharti on Thursday refused to comment on the Cabinet expansion by Madhya Pradesh's chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan earlier during the day.
Asked about the MP government's Cabinet expansion here outside the special CBI court after her deposition in the Babri mosque demolition case trial, state's former chief minister Bharti said, "What can be said about it here in the court?”
Earlier during the day, MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan expanded his Cabinet, inducting 28 new ministers, including a dozen loyalists of BJP MP Jyotiraditya Scindia, whose exit from the Congress in March led to the fall of the Kamal Nath government in the state.
Governor Anandiben Patel administered the oath of office to new ministers at a function in the Bhopal Raj Bhavan.
The event was organized amid strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocols.
Those inducted include 20 Cabinet ministers and eight ministers of state.
