LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh chief minister designate Akhilesh Yadav Wednesday admitted that the process of cabinet formation was "not an easy one" keeping in mind the excitement and aspiration of the people and party workers.

Yadav, 38, who will be sworn in Thursday, said that as he was finalising the cabinet he realised that "it was tough". He said he was trying to walk the middle path.

"There are so much expectations, hopes and responsibilities, it is a test for me," he told reporters.

"My efforts are to make a small, compact cabinet with a mix of the old and experienced and fresh blood," he said.

"The ministry will not be too big but I am sure, if need be, many could be sworn in later and the ministry could be expanded once the need arises," he added.
