Lucknow:  Two Ministers of State of the Uttar Pradesh government were today elevated to the rank of Cabinet minister.

Ministers of State Manoj Pandey and Gayatri Prasad Prajapati were administered the oath by Governor B L Joshi at the Raj Bhawan.

Though name of MLA Shivakant Ojha was also announced for taking oath as a Cabinet minister, it could not happen as the MLA was reportedly out of station.

Meanwhile in Amethi, Samajwadi Party activists and people from different walks of life congratulated Gayatri Prasad Prajapati on his elevation to the Akhilesh Yadav Cabinet.
