Manmohan Singh calls first Cabinet meet today

A day after taking oath as Prime Minister for the second term, Manmohan Singh called a meeting of the Union Cabinet today.

New Delhi, May 23 : A day after taking oath as Prime Minister for the second term, Manmohan Singh called a meeting of the Union Cabinet today.

According to sources, it is likely to take a decision on convening a Parliament session to enable new members to take oath. President Pratibha Patil will be addressing a joint sitting of both the houses during the session.

Earlier, Dr. Singh visited Mahatma Gandhi's memorials besides those of other departed leaders and placed a wreath on them.

He was sworn-in as Prime Minister for a second term along with 19 other Cabinet ministers on Friday.

The 76-year-old, soft-spoken economist is the first Prime Minister since post-independence after Jawaharlal Nehru to be returned to office after completing a full term.

Senior Congress leader Pranab Mukherjee, NCP chief Sharad Pawar, A K Antony, P Chidambaram, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, former Chief Ministers S M Krishna, Ghulam Nabi Azad, and Veerappa Moily were inducted in the Cabinet.

Kamal Nath, Sushilkumar Shinde, S Jaipal Reddy, Meira Kumar, Vayalar Ravi, Murali Deora, Kapil Sibal, B K Handique, Ambika Soni, Anand Sharma and C P Joshi also took oath as Cabinet Ministers.

Friday's swearing-in would be followed by an expansion of the Council of Ministers on May 26. The expansion would include Cabinet Ministers, Ministers of State (MoS) with independent charge as well as other Ministers of State.
