IANS  |  Mumbai 

Pawar was sworn in at the Raj Bhavan Friday morning.

Pawar, nephew of NCP chief and union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, had quit the cabinet Sep 25 after his name figured in an allegations of irregularities in a multi-crore irrigation deal during the time he was water resources minister from 1999-2009.

On Nov 30, a political storm erupted in Maharashtra as the state government's much-awaited white paper on the irrigation department was released giving Pawar a clean chit.
