The drama over induction of two new ministers in Delhi govt. has ended on Friday after both AAP MLAs Kailash Gahlot and Rajendra Pal Gautam sworn in to be a part of CM Arvind Kejriwalâ€™s cabinet.
Rajendra Pal Gautam replaced Kapil Mishra as Water Minister and Kailash Gahlot has been given charge of Law and Transport department.
Both the MLAâ€™s took oath hours after President Pranab Mukherjee approved their induction as new ministers in Arvind Kejriwalâ€™s cabinet.
The President also approved the removal ofÂ Kapil Mishra as a minister in the Delhi government.
Thursday, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal accused Centre of deliberately delaying the appointment of two ministers and asked why the Centre is delaying their appointment.
Why is Centre delaying approving appointment of two ministers? More than 12 daysâ€” Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) May 18, 2017
As per the rules, Delhi government needs Centreâ€™s approval to fill vacant cabinet seats. Â
After 12 days of the official announcement of Kailash Gahlot and Rajendra Pal Gautamâ€™s name as new ministers, the Home Ministry had on Thursday given its nod to their name and sent the file to President.Â
