BJP Leader Sarbananda Sonowal Sworn in as Union Cabinet Minister

Northeast Desk, 9th June: Sarbananda Sonowal, a senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Chief Minister of Assam, was officially sworn in as a Union Cabinet Minister today. Sonowal, who served as the Union Minister for Ports, Shipping, and Waterways in the outgoing Lok Sabha, will continue his tenure in the House of the People as the MP-elect from Dibrugarh, maintaining his significant role in the ministerial council.
