TDP supremo and AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is expected to induct AP Legislative Council Chairman NMD Farooq and Kidari Sravan, son of Araku MLA Kidari Sarveswara Rao who fell to Maoist bullets recently, into his Cabinet on Sunday. The event will take place at Undavalli in Guntur.
TDP sources informed that though the expansion was supposed to take place about three months back it did happen due to various reasons. As Scheduled Tribes also have representation in the Cabinet, Chandrababu indicated inducting Sravan into the Cabinet.
Though his father Kidari Sarveswara Rao’s name was in consideration for a Cabinet berth when he was alive, the expansion did not take place then. Sravan is neither a member of the Legislative Assembly nor the Council. Chandrababu has already promised and announced at a public meeting that he would give an opportunity to a Muslim representative in the Cabinet.
