Is the composition of AP’s Jagan ministry is going to change? Will the previously stated determination undergo change? Yes, say the analysts in view of the latest developments. In fact this issue came under the discussion among YSRCP leaders. Several leaders are worried as to what will be their situation after abolition of the council decided by Jagan government. There is also a large number of MLAs aspiring for ministerial berths.
In this context, to satisfy the cabinet berth aspirants following abolition of council, Jagan is said to have discussed with Peddi Reddy and Buganna his plan to limit his ministry to one-and-half year in three phases. What the council abolition has to do with cabinet expansion? It is but natural to have this doubt. There were many MLAs who are aspiring to become ministers in Jagan government. However, all could not be accommodated due to various reasons. Giving priority to social groups was another decision.
In this context, several MLAs like Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy and Roja were given nominated posts. They agreed to it. While MLCs were waiting for the opportunity, now council has been abolished. How will justice be done to them? This is now the question. The talk in YSRCP circles is that the MLAs holding nominated posts will be recalled and these posts will be given to MLCs who were promised the ministerial berths.
There are reports that the MLAs being recalled from nominated posts will be inducted in the ministry. YSRCP leadership feels that if the ministry is expanded in one-and-half year this will satisfy all. Let us see if this is how Jagan will recruit those rendered politically unemployed with the abolition of the council.
