There are rumours all over the media that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu promised a cabinet berth for coming in to the party. However it is emerging that Naidu imposed a big condition to the senior leader for a possible cabinet berth. Naidu clarified that he will be taken in to cabinet only if he resigns and get elected once again.
Currently, Talasani Srinivas Yadav who got elected from TDP is a minister in Telangana government. T-TDP is doing a battle there on taking another Party MLA in to cabinet unconstitutionally. Naidu also made severe criticism on this in the recent GHMC elections campaign. If Bhuma was taken in to AP cabinet, TDP will also face criticism and their own words will backfire.
However Bhuma getting elected once again from Nandhyala should not be very difficult given no formidable opposition. But the major worry is his rivals who are also in TDP now. Bhuma may be in trouble if they work against him in the by-election. So the ball is now in Bhuma’s court to possibly get inducted in to the cabinet.
