PM Modi's cabinet expansion took place on Wednesday.

A mega cabinet expansion of the Modi government 2.0 was held on Wednesday when 43 leaders took the oath of office in the Darbar Hall at Rashtrapati Bhavan. The swearing-in ceremony was conducted in the presence of President Ram Nath Kovind, Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah among other stalwarts.

Prime Minister Modi congratulated all the colleagues who have taken oath today and wish them the very best for their ministerial tenure. "We will continue working to fulfil aspirations of the people and build a strong and prosperous India," the Prime Minister tweeted.
