The cabinet expansion is most likely to be on 18nth. That is what political circles are predicting. But the real question is about the inclusion of KTR and Harish Rao in the cabinet. Some people say KTR will be dedicated to the party work and he will be elevated after the parliament elections. Some others say Harish Rao may not get the irrigation this time and the chief Minister KCR will directly take up irrigation. Soon after the elections Harish has been keeping quiet and maintaining a low profile. He went to TTD and then attended some religious programs of Jeeyar Swamy. He is keeping for himself. KTR is busy at the party office meeting people and leaders. Working out for the Parliament elections. He wants all the 16 seats for TRS leaving one for the MIM.
The names of Pocharam Srinivas Reddy and Padma Devendar are doing the rounds for the post of Speaker. T Srinivas Yadav, Laxma Reddy, Balka Suman are some names doing the rounds.We have Mahmood Ali as the Home Minister and there could be an addition of 8 names to the ministry taking the figure to 10 with the CM. But these are all speculations. The CM is playing his cards close to the chest. By 17nth we will be knowing what is the real picture. One woman will be in the cabinet and there is no doubt about it. KTR in a press meet earlier promised that the women will get all the prominence in the cabinet. But the real issue is that there will be no proper opposition to question the TRS. It will be a one-sided game.
