The cabinet of the Manohar Lal Khattar-led Haryana government will be expanded on Tuesday, the second time in two years, according to the Chief Minister’s Office. The new state cabinet members are due to take their oaths at Raj Bhavan at 4 p.m. tomorrow, according to the CMO. According to the state’s CMO tweet, on December 28, 2021, the Haryana cabinet will be increased, and the Haryana Raj Bhavan will host the swearing-in event.

Devender Singh Babli, the Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) MLA from Tohana, Gian Chand Gupta, the Haryana Assembly Speaker and MLA from Panchkula, and Dr Kamal Gupta, MLA from Hisar, are among those expected to be admitted into the state government.

This would be the second cabinet enlargement for Haryana’s BJP-JJP coalition administration since taking power in the state in 2019. Khattar increased his cabinet by inducting 10 more members in November 2019, more than two weeks after taking the oath of office as Haryana Chief Minister. The state now has 12 council of ministers, including the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister – six of cabinet rank and four ministers of state. Eight of the ten ministers are from the BJP, one from the Jannayak Janata Party (JJP), and one is independent.
The ministry can now accommodate two more ministers.
