The 10-month old Bhupinder Singh Hooda led Congress ministry in Haryana was expanded in Chandigarh this afternoon with the induction of four ministers, including three Ministers of State.
With this expansion, the total strength of the ministry has become 13.
Governor AR Kidwai administered the oath of office and secrecy to Harmohinder Singh Chatha, who was inducted into the Cabinet, and Kiran Chaudhary, Savitri Jindal and Meena Rani -- all Ministers of State.
