Khattar Cabinet has oldest, youngest Chautala

Khattar Cabinet's average assets are worth Rs 17.42 crore, the lowest value being of Anil Vij's Rs 1.17 crore and the highest of JP Dalal's Rs 76.75 crore

The first Cabinet expansion of the 14th Assembly of Haryana took place here on Thursday. Dushyant Chautala, an MLA from Uchana Kalan and JJP chief, is the youngest minister in the Cabinet. He is 31-year old. Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Dushyant Chautala had been sworn in on the first day of the Haryana government formation.

Age-wise in the Haryana Cabinet, Dushyant is followed by Sandeep Singh, a 33-year-old former hockey player. Ranjit Singh, son of former Deputy Prime Minister Chaudhary Devi Lal, who won as an independent from Nian, is the oldest minister aged 73 years. Ranjit Singh is also a brother of Dushyant’s grandfather Omprakash Chautala.

Among the 10 ministers who were sworn in today, six are Cabinet-rank ministers and the rest are ministers of state with independent charge.

While the swearing-in ceremony does not include spelling out of portfolios, sources said Chief Minister Khattar will keep finance and industry with the BJP.

With this expansion, the strength of the Haryana Council of Ministers has become 12. Two more ministers can be made in the 90-seat Assembly. The BJP, which won 40 seats in the Assembly election, formed the government with the support of JJP (10 seats) and Independents (7).

4 Jats including Dy CM Dushyant

Haryana BJP seemed to be trying to compensate for the alienated Jats who had been sulking since they lost their privileged position in 2014 with this Cabinet expansion. The Khattar Cabinet now has four representations from the Jat community, including Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala. There are also three Punjabis including Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, two members of the Scheduled Castes, one Yadav, Gurjar and Brahmin each in the Cabinet.
