Former Minister- ex-TDP leader Tummala Nageswara Rao, who recently jumped into TRS, is expected to join KCR’s cabinet soon. Amid reports of KCR’s cabinet expansion, the one name that’s doing the rounds is Tummala. KCR said to have very good opinion on Tummala and he publicly stated that in Khammam during his inclusion into party. KCR, who is strongly toying with the idea of strengthening TRS in Khammam district, is going to put the onus on Tummala.
Given that Tummala hasn’t been elected to Assembly, KCR is likely to nominate Tummala in upcoming MLC elections. KCR is buzzed to field Tummala as TRS candidate for MLC in Nizamabad district which is reported to be a cake walk as already Nizamabad MP Kavitha has strong foot hold and of course, TRS is in ruling. Meanwhile, there are several other probables. Ex Minister Jupalli Krishna Rao, who had given up his ministry during Congress regime and joined TRS much before T-state become reality, is one among probables. Another probable in the race for ministry is Jadcherla MLA Laxma Reddy.
However, there is no clue yet on when KCR is going to expand his cabinet. But the wish list is growing bigger and stronger. It needs to be seen how KCR is going to tackle this.
