Shivraj Chouhan's cabinet is full of Graduates and Post-Graduates

Spread The Word

Almost all of the Ministers in Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's cabinet are either Graduate or Post Graduate. Maximum number of them are law graduates as seven out of the total twenty two possess the LLB degree.
While Chouhan is post-graduate in Philosophy, the law graduates include Babulal Gaur, Jayant Mallaiya, Gopal Bhrgava, Raghavji, Kailash Vijaywargiya,Laxmikant Sharma and Jagdish Devda, official sources said.

Three engineers, two (Jagannath Singh and K L Agrawal) in mechanical stream and one (Rajendra Shukla) in civil have also found the place in the State Cabinet.

Among the two women members in the Cabinet, Archana Chitnis is MSc BEd and therefore, entrusted with the task of managing School and Higher Education departments, they said.

Another woman member of the Cabinet is Ranjana Bagel who is a post-graduate and entrusted with the task of managing Women and Child Development department.

Five of them are graduates while two are post-graduates.

Dr R M Krishna Kusumaria is the most highly qualified person in the Cabinet with a doctorate degree.

The least qualified minister is Devi Singh Sayyam who did not pursue his education after standard eighth.
Although the idea of a Lawyer as Minister does sounds scary to me, no offense to the profession. There is a popular sentiment like this in the US and Bharatvaasi (misnomer: Indians) have also burnt their hands in the past with the Blunder of a Century Jawahar Lal Nehru who was also lawyer by profession.

But at least these Ministers in Mr. Chouhan's cabinet are Graduates as compared to the mockery of Democracy made by Congress in Rajasthan which chose an illiterate Gomla Devi, who couldn't even read her oath, over someone more educated because of its divisive caste and dynasty politics. Being Graduates, hopefully they will know what they are signing before they sign it. And being Lawyers, oh they will know to read it first as compared to illiterates in Congress who can't even read a simple oath.
