Bhopal: After nearly 53 days of Madhya Pradesh by-election, the cabinet has been expanded third on Sunday. It is also being said that even after the expansion, the crisis has not ended for the Shivraj government. In fact, yesterday, Tulsiram Silavat, a supporter of Rajya Sabha MP Jyotiraditya Scindia and Govind Singh Rajput, has got an entry in the cabinet. Even after that, there are four ministerial posts in the cabinet. In such a situation, senior BJP MLAs were also pressurizing Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan to become a minister, but he could not find a place in the cabinet.
In the month of March last year, Jyotiraditya Scindia left the Congress party along with 22 of his supporting MLAs and joined the BJP. Because of this, the Kamal Nath government had fallen and the BJP government had returned. After all this, Shivraj Singh Chauhan became the Chief Minister for the fourth time and saw the dominance of the pro-Scindia leaders in the government. After this happened, a total of fourteen non-MLAs who were pro-Scindia in Shivraj Singh Chauhan's cabinet were made ministers and ministers of state. At the same time, 5 ministers were sworn in when Shivraj Singh Chauhan expanded the cabinet for the first time after becoming CM for the fourth time.
Govind Singh Rajput and Tulsi Silavat were included in this list, but both had to resign if elections were not held within 6 months. Now after that, the third expansion of the cabinet has been done on yesterday. Till now, a total of 6 ministerial posts in the Shivraj cabinet were vacant, but on Sunday, two MLAs have sworn in as ministers and there is still a crisis for the remaining posts.
