Chandy cabinet sworn in

Those who took oath of office and secrecy along with  Oommen Chandy were K M Mani, P K Kunhalikutty, T M Jacob, P K Mohanan, Ganeshkumar and Shibu Baby John. A large crowd of MLAs, former ministers, bureaucrats and relatives of the ministers attended the proceedings as the UDF activists invaded the capital city.

Among the ministers, Mohanan, Ganeshkumar and  Mr Shibu Baby John also happen to be the sons of former ministers P R Kurup, R Balakrishna Pillai and Baby John respectively. The late Kurup and Baby John were part of the LDF cabinets while Pillai, a senior UDF leader, is in jail after being convicted in the Edamalayar dam corruption case.

The ministers later attended a high tea offered by the Governor before proceeding to the Secretariat to attend their first meeting. The remaining 13 members will be sworn in at a function on May 23.
