Bhopal: Congress MLA from Dhar, Balmukund Singh Gautam was today administered oath as the member of the Madhya Pradesh Assembly by Speaker Ishwardas Rohani.

Gautam was recently declared elected by the Madhya Pradesh High Court`s Indore bench after a protracted legal battle.

The court declared the membership of BJP`s Neena Verma as "void" following a petition filed by Gautam challenging her victory by a margin of just one vote in the re-counting in 2008 Assembly elections.
Gautam termed the decision as a "victory of truth" after taking oath as the member of the State Assembly.
