Chhattisgarh Oath Ceremony: BJP leader Vishnu Deo Sai took oath as the fourth Chief Minister of the state. The swearing-in ceremony took place at Science College ground in the state's capital.  Meanwhile, Arun Sao and Vijay Sharma were also administered oaths as Deputy Chief Ministers of Chhattisgarh. As per the norm, the Chhattisgarh cabinet can have a maximum of 13 ministers including the Chief Minister. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP Chief JP Nadda and other leaders of the party were present at the ceremony. Sai, a tribal face and political veteran who served as a Union Minister, emerged as the dark horse of the week-long suspense over the chief ministerial post of Chhattisgarh. Sai's name was announced as the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh on December 10 after a key meeting of the BJP's newly-elected 54 MLAs in the state was held in Raipur. He won the Kunkuri Assembly seat with a total of 87,604 votes. The new Chief Minister started his political career as a village sarpanch. In 1989, he was elected as a 'panch' of Bagia village panchayat and the next year he became the sarpanch unopposed.
