BHOPAL: Never in the history of any state did cabinet formation take such a long time as in the present case in Madhya Pradesh. Shivraj Singh Chouhan took oath on March 23, 2020. It was for the fourth time that he was sworn in as the Chief Minister. First time he took oath in 2005 after Babulal Gaur was forced to resign. This time, after taking over as Chief Minister on March 23, he functioned as a single-member cabinet. After a big gap, he added five ministers to his team, including two defectors from the Scindia camp. Till now, he is functioning with this truncated team for last 15 days. Rumour is afloat that the ministry may be expanded anytime. Last it was heard that ministry may be expanded on May 31.
