BJP MP Faggan Singh Kulaste, who represents the Mandla constituency of Madhya Pradesh, took oath as a Cabinet Minister today at a ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
Kulaste’s name had figured in the 2008 cash-for-vote scandal. He was jailed for two months over a sting operation exposing what was called the cash-for-vote before the trust vote of the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government in 2008. However, a court in Delhi had acquitted him in the case.
