At 11.30AM today Chiranjeevi, Kotla Surya Prakash Reddy, Balaram Nayak, Killi Kruparani,Sarve Satyanarayana will be taking oath as cabinet ministers. Current Ministers Pallam Raju, Purandeeswari will also be becoming full flegded Cabinet Ministers getting promotions from Ministers of state.However all this did not go down well with the seniors in the state who are making alternate arrangements as they did not get the desired recognition in the party.
Andhra Pradesh for long has been a neglected lot at Union Govt and in cabinet portfolios and expansions. Many times state media used to predict some portfolios to seniors but they were insulted repeatedly. Even when the state played key role in Govt formation sending 33 cong MPs, nothing substantial happened to State. Instead the state plunged into telangana problem. People used to express their anger that proper representation is not there at center and these spineless MPs are only showing their loyalty to Sonia and not to State to get personal favors.
But for the first time in the history of Independent India, AP is going to get amazing recognition. State will be having 10 Ministers in the Union Cabinet. Sonia and Cong High Command is keen on erasing the allegation that the state is getting step motherly treatment and in its bid to stem the party’s rot in the state due to Jagan and Telangana factor, it is doling out favors.
