Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren Tuesday expanded his cabinet by inducting a minister.

Jharkhand Governor Syed Ahmed administered oath to Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) legislator Lobin Hembrom as the 12th minister.

Jharkhand can have a maximum of 12 ministers, including the chief minister.

Lobin is a legislator from Santhal Paragna. The 12th minister's post fell vacant after Hemant Soren sacked Simon Marandi for working against the party in the April-May Lok Sabha poll.
