Upon request from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to accept the resignations of ministers who quit on Tuesday, the L-G Saxena recommended the same to the President.

Meanwhile, after Sisodia’s resignation, the AAP government has decided to assign his departments to two of his cabinet colleagues – Kailash Gahlot and Raaj Kumar Anand – till new ministers are inducted.

Of the 18 departments headed by Sisodia, the responsibilities of eight departments, including Finance and PWD, have been given to Gahlot, while the remaining ten which include Education and Health have been assigned to Anand.

With the new responsibilities handed over to Gehlot and Anand, both ministers will now have 14 departments each.
