Gehlot, Gautam sworn-in as new Delhi ministers

IANS  |  New Delhi 

legislators Rajendra Pal Gautam and Gehlot were on Friday sworn in as ministers in the cabinet.

While Najafgarh legislator Gehlot was given the charge of Law and Justice, Transport, Information Technology and Administrative Reforms, Gautam -- who represents the Seemapuri assembly constituency -- was given the charge of Water, Social welfare, SC/ST, Art and Culture, Gurudwara Elections and Languages, a government official said.

Both the legislators are advocates.

On May 6, Kapil Mishra, who was holding the portfolio of Water, Tourism and Culture, was in a sudden move sacked by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Kejriwal also raised questions on the Central government for not approving the appointments of its two ministers for over 12 days.
