Shiromani Akali Dal MLA Sewa Singh Sekhwan was on Monday inducted into the Parkash Singh Badal ministry in Punjab, taking its strength to 18.

Punjab Governor SF Rodrigues administered the oath of office and secrecy to Sekhwan at a simple function at Raj Bhavan in Chandigarh in the presence of the chief minister and other state leaders.

Sekhwan, who had won the by-election to the Kahnuwan assembly constituency in August, fills the slot which fell vacant following the death of Cooperation Minister Kanwaljit Singh in a road accident.
