Rajasthan CM Gehlot’s cabinet will have 12 new faces, 5 faces from rival
He said Congress President Sonia Gandhi has accepted the resignations of three cabinet ministers – Raghu Sharma, Harish Choudhary and Govind Singh Dotasara after all the 21 members of the Rajasthan cabinet resigned.
The resignations of Sharma, Choudhary and Dotasara were accepted as they are holding party posts and the “one man, one post” formula has been implemented in the state.
Sharma has been appointed as the in-charge of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) for Gujarat, Choudhary in-charge of the AICC for Punjab and Dotasara as the chief of the Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC).
The Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government will have a total of 30 ministers, including 18 who had resigned earlier.
Sources said three state ministers, all of whom belong to the Scheduled Caste (SC) community, have been promoted to cabinet rank.
The new state cabinet will have four members from the Scheduled Castes for the first time, a move taken by the Congress after elevating a Dalit as the Chief Minister of Punjab.
Sources said there would be three ministers from the Scheduled Tribe (ST) community, adding that the cabinet would also have three women – one Muslim, one SC community and one Gujjar.
Among the new ministers to take oath as cabinet ministers are Hemaram Chaudhary, Mahendrajit Singh Malviya, Ramlal Jat, Mahesh Joshi, Vishvendra Singh, Ramesh Meena, Mamta Bhupesh Bhairwa, Bhajanlal Jatav, Tikaram Juli, Govind Ram Meghwal and Shakuntala Rawat.
Zahida, Brijendra Singh Ola, Rajendra Durha and Murlilal Meena were among those who took oath as the new ministers of state on Sunday.
Vishvendra Singh, Ramesh Meena and Hemaram Chaudhary are cabinet ministers from the Sachin Pilot camp, besides Brijendra Ola and Murari Meena are ministers of state.
Two of them – Vishvendra Singh and Ramesh Meena – were sacked as cabinet ministers last year during a political crisis in the state. The three SC ministers who have been promoted to cabinet rank are Bhajanlal Jatav, Mamta Bhupesh Bhairwa and Tikaram Julie.
Another SC member, former MP Govind Ram Meghwal, is a new face to join the renewed cabinet.
Former Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MLA Rajinder Guda, who later joined the Congress, has also been inducted as a minister.
Dotasara shared on Twitter the list of 15 ministers – 11 cabinet ministers and four ministers of state – who were sworn in on Sunday.
Sources said no independent MLAs have been given ministerial berths, while some of them will be inducted as parliamentary secretaries. Some former BSP MLAs would also be inducted as parliamentary secretaries, he said, adding that some senior legislators would be made advisors to the chief minister.
After the recent by-elections, in which it snatched a seat from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the ruling Congress has 102 MLAs in the 200-member Rajasthan Assembly.
Earlier, before the cabinet reshuffle, all the ministers of the Rajasthan government resigned during a meeting at Chief Minister Gehlot’s residence in Jaipur on Saturday evening.
Dotasara, who, along with Sharma and Chowdhury, had offered to resign in a letter to Gandhi, made a proposal at the beginning of the meeting after which all the ministers resigned.
Later in the evening, the Chief Minister went to the Raj Bhavan and held a meeting with Governor Kalraj Mishra in connection with the cabinet reshuffle.
