Eighteen days after the BJP-led government was formed in Haryana, CM Manohar Lal Khattar expanded his ministry today, inducting six Cabinet Ministers and four Ministers of State. BJP’s post-poll ally JJP was allotted a berth and so was an Independent. Kamlesh Dhanda was the sole woman MLA to be taken in the Cabinet, which still has two vacancies.
