This time, the saffron party fell short of the majority mark by five seats but was supported by the newly floated Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) of Dushyant Chautala. BJP leader and a key RSS man Manohar Lal Khattar and JJP president Dushyant Chautala took oath as the CM and Deputy CM on Sunday at the Raj Bhawan in Chandigarh. The Council of Ministers will be expanded only after the first session of the Legislative Assembly. The session has been convened from November 4. This was announced on Tuesday after the first Cabinet meeting which was attended by Khattar and Chautala. The meeting was held in New Delhi.
As mandated by the Constitution, the strength of the Council of Ministers in any state in the country shouldn’t cross the 15% of the strength of the Legislative Assembly. This includes the Chief Minister as well. According to this formula, the state of Haryana can have a maximum of 14 ministers. This means, there is a vacancy for 12 ministers in the government.
