Vishnu gets cabinet post, Ali to be made advisor?

If the reports coming from the YSR Congress party are to be believed, popular Tollywood comedian Ali is going be appointed as an advisor to the Jagan Mohan Reddy government.

According to the sources, Jagan has approved the file pertaining to appointment of Ali as the advisor to the state government on electronic media affairs. Orders to this effect might be issues shortly.

Though there were reports that Jagan might nominate Ali to Rajya Sabha, it did not happen.

The comedian had met the chief minister early this year and got an assurance from the latter that he would get a respectable position. Now, Ali would be appointed as the advisor on electronic media affairs, sources said.

At the same, another Tollywood comedian-cum-character artiste and hard core loyalist of the YSRC Posani Krishna Murali is also going to get a prominent post in the Jagan government.

He is likely to be appointed as the chairman of AP State Film, Television and Theatre Development Corporation.

“In all probability, both the orders on appointment of Ali and Posani would be issued in a day or two,” sources said.

Meanwhile, senior YSRC leader and Vijayawada (Central) legislator Malladi Vishnu has been appointed as vice-chairman of AP State Planning Board. Orders to this effect were issued on Thursday.

Vishnu was accorded state cabinet rank and would be provided all the facilities of a cabinet minister. He will be in the post for a period of two years.

It may be mentioned that Vishnu was originally promised a berth in the state cabinet, but could not be accommodated due to caste equations.
