 In what can be termed as a near-total revamp of the Yogi Adityanath government, 23 new ministers were sworn in at the Raj Bhawan by Governor Anandiben Patel on August 21, 2019. The newly inducted ministers include six Cabinet Ministers, six Ministers of State with Independent charge and 11 Ministers of State. The most significant aspect of the reshuffle is that majority of the newly inducted ministers are first-timers with almost no administrative experience. Yogi Adityanath will face an uphill task in making these ministers perform. The Cabinet Ministers, who were sworn in are Mahendra Singh, Bhupendra Chaudhary, Anil Rajbhar, Suresh Rana, Kamal Rani and Ram Naresh Agnihotri. Except for Kamal Rani and Ram Naresh Agnihotri, the remaining four have been elevated. Those sworn in as Ministers of State with Independent charge are Kapil Dev, Ashok Katehria, Neelkanth Tiwari, Ravindra Jaiswal, Shri Ram Chauhan and Satish Dwiwedi -- the latter had defeated former Speaker Mata Prasad Pandey in 2017.<br /><br />Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in a group photo with the newly inducted ministers after their swearing-in ceremony at Raj Bhawan in Lucknow.
