Malladi Vishnu To Head Brahmin Corporation

Malladi Vishnu To Head Brahmin Corporation

After a long wait of over seven months, senior YSR Congress party leader and MLA Malladi Vishnu is going to be nominated as the chairman of Andhra Pradesh Brahmin Welfare Corporation.

According to sources, orders to this effect would be issued shortly. Though there is nothing much for Vishnu to do in the capacity of Brahmin Welfare Corporation, it is definitely some recognition for his loyalty to the party.

Vishnu, who won the last assembly elections from Vijayawada Central assembly constituency over Telugu Desam Party candidate Bonda Umamaheshwar Rao with a slender margin of 15 votes, was hoping to get a berth in the Jagan Mohan Reddy cabinet in the Brahmin quota.

There are only two Brahmin legislators elected on the YSRC ticket out of 151 MLAs – Malladi Vishnu and Kona Raghupathi. Since both are strong loyalists of the party, Jagan had a tough task in selecting either of them for inducting into the cabinet.

Since Vishnu is a senior of the two with long association with Jagan’s father late chief minister Y S Rajasekhar Reddy and is also believed to have taken care of YSR’s personal interests in Vijayawada, he expected that Jagan would take him into the cabinet.

There was also a talk that Jagan would make Malladi Vishnu the Speaker of the state assembly and take Raghupathi into the cabinet. But he avoided both. 

He made Raghupathi as the deputy speaker of the assembly and kept Vishnu’s request in pending. Now, he has honoured Vishnu with the post of Brahmin Corporation chairman.
