    Increase in the cabinet is understandable due to the formation of the national govt and in keeping with election pledge and there is provision in the constitution for this.

    President is going against his previous talk of good governance. He is misusing the 19a option to increase the ministers in case of a national government. Arguably this is not a national government either.
