New Delhi: First-time Lok Sabha MP Kailash Choudhary was on Thursday sworn in as a minister of state in the Union Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare in the new cabinet of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The 40-year old has been elected from Barmer, the largest parliamentary constituency in Rajasthan. Barmer comprises eight Assembly segments and has traditionally been a strong seat of Congress.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha election, Choudhary defeated Congress candidate and BJP veteran Jaswant Singh’s son, Manvendra Singh, with a margin of 3.23 lakh votes or 22.75% of the vote share.

Choudhary got a total of 8. 44 lakh votes (59.52%) while Manvendra Singh got 5.20 lakh votes (36.75%). Manvendra Singh had quit the BJP in 2018, four years after his father’s name was dropped as party candidate for the 2014 Lok Sabha election.
