Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao appoints two TRS MLAs as Parliamentary Secretaries. Husnabad Legislator Vodithela Satish Kumar and Tungathurthi legislator Gadiri Kishore are the new secretaries, taking the overall count to six.
KCR even allocated portfolios to all the six Parliamentary Secretaries. Jalagam Venkat Rao and D Vinay Bhaskar were attached to the CMO. Vodithela Satish Kumar, Gadari Kishore Kumar, Srinivas Goud and Kova Laxmi have been alloted to the Education Minister, Health Minister, Revenue Minister and Agriculture Minister respectively.
The new move by KCR is to pacify the Cabinet Birth Aspirants in his party as most the seats in his first cabinet expansion has gone to defectors. Even nominated posts were allotted to some of the TRS MLAs.
