Bhopal: The new Cabinet of Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath will take oath on 25 December in Raj Bhavan at 3 pm.

Congress veteran Nath was sworn-in as chief minister on 17 December, six days after his party posted a narrow victory over the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which ruled the state for 15 years.

Nath has been camping in New Delhi since the past three days to finalise the list of his Cabinet colleagues, to be sworn in Tuesday, in consultation with Congress president Rahul Gandhi and other senior party leaders.

Their names have not been made public so far.

According to party sources, one or two Independent MLAs may get into the new Cabinet.

Though the Congress, with 114 seats, emerged as the single largest party in the 230-member Assembly, it failed to cross the halfway mark on its own and enlisted support of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP), which have won two seats and one, respectively.

Four Independent MLAs, who are Congress rebels, have also extended their support, taking the total number of MLAs on the Congress side to 121. The BJP had won 109 seats.

The Madhya Pradesh Assembly session is going to begin on 7 January with the oath-taking by newly elected MLAs.
