Many ministers who were sworn in Madhya Pradesh today are those several loyalists of Jyotiraditya Scindia, a long-time Congress leader who switched to the BJP in March.

Twenty-eight new ministers joined the Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led BJP government in Madhya Pradesh today.  The cabinet expansion had been delayed for months over the fight for ministries.

A significant number of former Congress leaders have joined the cabinet under Jyotiraditya Scindia’s stamp.

Shivraj Singh Chouhan had to stand down on many candidates he had suggested to the party leadership, according to the sources

“Manthan se toh amrit hi nikalta hai, vish toh Shiv pee jaatein hain (nectar is produced only when there is a churning, and Lord Shiv must drink the poison),” Mr Chouhan said on Wednesday. This statement, which is on the Chief Minister’s name, was interpreted that the new cabinet or his new team may not include the ministers he wanted.

The Chief Minister tweeted a conciliatory message: “I congratulate all the ministers who took oath today. We all will work together to achieve our common goals of development and public welfare in Madhya Pradesh. I am confident that I will get your full support in bringing new reforms,” this morning. So did Jyotiraditya Scindia.

The Congress lost power to the BJP after 22 rebels quit along with Jyotiraditya Scindia, once a close aide of Rahul Gandhi.

There were only five ministers in the government since mid-April. Even theses ministers inducted nearly a month after Mr Chouhan took oath in March. The cabinet expansion had been due since March.

There were raging disagreements over the allocation of ministries between the BJP and the former Congressmen who expected to be rewarded for bringing down the Congress government led by Kamal Nath, but the delay was officially attributed to the coronavirus lockdown and the Rajya Sabha election. Behind the scenes.

Former Chief Minister Kamal Nath did not leave an opportunity to aim a swipe at Mr Chouhan at the BJP. “I feel very sad at not finding many able, dedicated and senior BJP MLAs in today’s cabinet expansion,” this Ex Chief Minister tweeted in Hindi, strengthening suppositions that Mr Chouhan has lost to his bitter rival-turned-colleague Jyotiraditya Scindia, the very first time.
