Cabinet expansion triggers unrest in TRS!

Cabinet expansion triggers unrest in TRS!

The cabinet expansion undertaken by the Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday has naturally triggered unrest in some party leaders.

The interesting point here is that in the past, if there is any such unrest in the TRS, no leader used to dare to come out openly, as they used to fear KCR. Now, the party leaders are not hesitating to raise their voice against the party leadership.

Take the case of former home minister and senior leader Nayini Narasimha Reddy. He was not only denied the MLA ticket in 2018 assembly elections, he was also not given a berth in the cabinet.

Nayini told media on Monday that KCR had betrayed him.

“He did not abide by his promise that I will be made a minister. He did not give me party ticket to contest the assembly elections and made me MLC, stating that I would be taken into the cabinet. KCR had also promised to make my son-in-law as an MLC. But he did not fulfil any of his promises,” he lamented.

On the reports that he would be made chairman of Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) chairman, Nayini said he was not interested in such a post.

“There is no life in that post,” he said.

The former home minister claimed that he was also one of the many owners of the TRS.

“KCR is our family head. All those who joined the party midway are just tenants. I don’t know how long these tenants will stay,” he said.

Another senior TRS leader and former deputy chief minister T Rajaiah also openly expressed his disgruntlement at the cabinet expansion.

“There are 11-12 per cent of Madigas in Telangana. But not a single Madiga could find a place in the Telangana cabinet. One has to raise the voice in support of Madigas. If Opposition parties talk about their issue, they would be ignored for politicizing the issue. So, I am forced to speak on their behalf,” he said.
