Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to expand his cabinet some time in the next week. National Media is abuzz that it may happen on 22nd of this month. Reports are emerging that BJP may allot one more berth for TDP given that they have accommodated Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in TDP’s quota of Rajya Sabha seats.
If Naidu decided to ignore first time and other party joiners, Konakalla Narayana, Nimmala Kishtappa and Siva Prasad may be the lucky guys. Konakalla may also find it difficult as Sujana Chowdary is already having a central ministry from Krishna district. Naidu may not give two to the same district.
Since Uttarandhra and Krishna are accommodated, more chances are for Rayalaseema MPs. In such case, Nimmala Kishtappa or Siva Prasad may get the berth. But other MPs are also trying their level best to impress the Chief Minister. However BJP is yet to formally inform TDP about cabinet expansion and giving one more seat to the yellow party.
