Newly inducted Punjab ministers allotted portfolios, Aman Arora gets Urban Development
Anmol Gagan Mann was allocated Tourism and Cultural Affairs.
In a tweet, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann shared information about the portfolios allotted to the ministers.
It was the first cabinet expansion of the Mann-led government after the AAP stormed to power in the state after the Assembly elections earlier this year.
Gagan Mann is the second woman to be inducted as cabinet minister in the Mann-led government.
With the induction of five more ministers on Monday, the strength of the state cabinet has climbed to 15, including the chief minister.
After the AAP formed the government following its resounding victory in the assembly polls, 10 MLAs, including eight first-timers, were inducted as ministers in March.
There are 18 berths in the cabinet, including the chief minister.
The Aam Aadmi Party had stormed to power in Punjab by bagging 92 seats out of a total of 117.
