Parkash Singh Badal  sworn in as CM on Mar 14 2012 for Fifth Term

With an expected crowd of over 50,000 people looking on, Parkash Singh Badal, 84, will become chief minister of Punjab for a record fifth time Wednesday as he takes oath of office at the historical Sikh memorial of Chappar Chiri in Mohali town.

Badal, who served as chief minister in 1969, 1977, 1997 and 2007, has held office for nearly 14 years so far. His cabinet, including his son Sukhbir Singh Badal, who will be inducted as deputy chief minister, will be sworn-in by Punjab Governor Shivraj Patil. Badal was last week formally elected leader of the Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP alliance. Beating the traditional anti-incumbency factor, the combine bagged a comfortable majority with 68 seats in the 117-member Punjab assembly. It is for the first time in over four decades that a government has been able to return to power for a consecutive term in Punjab. While the Akalis won 56 seats, the BJP bagged 12 seats. The rival Congress got only 46 seats.
