The appointments formed the first batch of appointees into statutory agencies, boards and commission.

Others are Housing Corporation, Health Management Board, State Agro Services and that of the State Bulk Purchase Corporation.

The appointees were drawn from across the major political tendencies in consonance with the administration’s inclusive governance philosophy, which emphasises leadership paradigm shift.
