Names of MLAs including Aman Arora (Sunam), Sarvjit Kaur Manuke (Jagraon), Baljinder Kaur (Talwandi Sabo), Budh Ram (Budhlada), Inderbir Singh Nijjar (Amritsar South) and Anmol Gagan Mann (Kharar) are doing the rounds for the ministerial positions. Though no no word from the party on the names of MLAs has been announced as of yet.

Bhagwant Mann government was formed in Punjab after AAP’s resounding victory in the 2022 assembly polls. The AAP stormed to power by bagging 92 seats in the 117-member Punjab Vidhan Sabha during the state assembly polls

There are 18 berths in the cabinet, including the chief minister. Currently, there are nine ministers in the Mann-led cabinet.
