Mumbai: The Maharashtra Cabinet was expanded on Monday as late Vilasrao Deshmukh's son Amit and Abdul Sattar of the Congress sworn-in as ministers in the Prithviraj Chavan government. This is the second expansion of the Chavan cabinet in recent days. Earlier, the NCP's Jitendra Awhad was inducted as well.

Chavan, who returned from Delhi after meeting the Congress top leadership, met Maharashtra Governor K Sankaranarayanan at the Raj Bhavan in this connection, the sources said.

Incidentally, the hurriedly announced expansion of the Chavan-led ministry in Maharashtra had failed to materialise on Sunday, giving the Opposition ample fodder to ridicule the Congress-NCP government.

"The Congress (led) state government is hilarious! They declare (to) sworn in new ministers and within two hours they hold it (back)," BJP Mumbai unit president Ashish Shelar had said.

"(They have) no shame for such poor decision making skills. It is such style of work that has put the city in a coma," Shelar had said.

This is probably the last ministerial expansion of the Congress-NCP government, whose third term in office ends in four months.
