Senior leader Kamal Nath was sworn in as the 18th Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh on Monday after Congress emerged as the single-largest party albeit falling short of the half-way mark by two seats in the recently declared results of the polls.

Tiwari began practice in 1964 at the Madhya Pradesh High Court in Jabalpur. With a career spanning more than 54 years, he had assumed charge as the Chairman of the High Court Bar Association in 1993 and simultaneously practised at the lower courts.

Tiwari has also served as the Deputy Advocate general of the state from 1984 to 1988 and was designated as a senior advocate in 1995. He has been involved in several social and cultural initiatives.

Tiwari's predecessor Purushaindra Kaurav had tendered his resignation from the post of AG on 12 December, a day after the state Assembly election results. Kaurav was the AG since June 2017.

Speaking to The Hitavada, Tiwari said that it would be his endeavour to ensure that no one is deprived of justice.  He was welcomed by a number of advocates and members of the legal fraternity around 3 pm on Tuesday.
