Only 10 ministers including Mann
There are 10 ministers in the government of Punjab including Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann. Aam Aadmi Party had made 10 ministers apart from the CM when the government was formed. However, Dr. Vijay Singla, who was involved in this, was sacked in the corruption case. After this, Dr. Inderbir Nijjar, who is now being made minister from Amritsar, can be given the health ministry. CM Bhagwant Mann currently has 28 departments. In such a situation, apart from the local government, many important ministries can be handed over to the newly appointed ministers.
Officers were put on duty
After the cabinet expansion of Mann government, the duty of officers has been imposed for the swearing-in ceremony of the newly formed ministers. PCS officers have been asked to report on this tomorrow.
