Hours after 15 ministers took oath in a cabinet expansion in Rajasthan, the state government has appointed six MLAs, including three independents, as advisors to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. The Congress MLAs who have been appointed advisors are Jitendra Singh, Rajkumar Sharma and Danish Abrar.
Independent legislators Babu Lal Nagar, Sanyam Lodha and Ramkesh Meena have also been appointed advisers to Gehlot, according to a list released by the Chief Minister's Office.
Fifteen ministers took the oath in Rajasthan on Sunday in a cabinet expansion that included 12 new faces, fulfilling a key demand of former deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot whose rebellion last year shook the state’s Congress government.
Gehlot had earlier in the day said those who did not make it to the council of ministers will be adjusted in other political appointments.
