The Mamata Banerjee government ministry will be expanded on

Monday morning, with the induction of 24 cabinet ministers,

10 ministers of state with independent charge, and another

9 ministers of state, as per the list released on Sunday.

The swearing-in ceremony is due to be held at 10.45 a.m. today.

The 24-member cabinet includes some old names like former

ministers Subrata Mukherjee (Panchayati Raj), Partha Chatterjee (Education),

Arup Biswas (Urban Development), Jyotipriyo Mullick (Food and Civil Supplies),

Sovandeb Chattopadhyay (Power), and Bratya Basu (Science and Technology) and some new faces that include long-time MLA Bamkim Chandra Hazra, Madhyamgram MLA Rathin Ghosh, and newly-elected MLAs like Pulok Roy and Biplab Mitra.

The most surprising name is of perhaps former Finance Minister Amit Mitra, who had not contested this election due to ill-health.
