As cabinet expansion is on the cards, ministers in AP CM Chandrababu Naidu's cabinet are worried lot. Reports are rife that two key ministers may be shown the door this time and that is said to be making many ministers sleepless.
The list of probables into Naidu's cabinet is huge. Talk is that several MLAs and MLCs, who have been with the party during the tough time, are expected to be inducted into the cabinet. When TDP was in Opposition for 10 years, leaders like Gali Muddukrishnama Naidu, Dhulipalla Narendra, Somireddy Chandramohan Reddy, Payyavula Keshav stood like rock and have supported the party tooth and nail.
Meanwhile, MLAs who jumped from YSRCP to TDP recently are expecting that they'd be elevated to cabinet. While taking Bhuma Nagireddy is almost confirmed, it needs to be seen whether Jyothula Nehru would be given opportunity this time or not. If this is not enough, recently Naidu promised a Muslim minority would be given chance.
This is not all. Amidst reports that Nara Lokesh would be given a crucial portfolio, one is wondering how Naidu would please all seniors and come out with a list that'd balance all political, caste equations. On the whole, one thing is clear. It's not going to be easy for Naidu! As of now, the tension prevails among AP ministers.
