Naidu starts work on Andhra cabinet, holds talks with colleagues | India News – Times of India

VIJAYAWADA: TDP chief and Andhra Pradesh chief minister-elect N Chandrababu Naidu has started working on a new state cabinet and may give a couple of cabinet berths to Jana Sena and BJP.
The TD Legislature Party is scheduled to meet on June 11 and Chandrababu Naidu is to take oath on June 12. He will also attend the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi.
Naidu held an informal meeting with party senior leaders, newly elected MPs available here and party MLAs at his Undavalli residence. He also spoke to them on the Union Cabinet and the party’s stand, saying TDP would be part of the Union Cabinet this time.
TDP state president K Atchennaidu is a sure name for the state cabinet. Similarly, MLC Yanamala Ramakrishnudu is also to be included. The role of Nara Lokesh is not decided yet. Sources said Chandrababu Naidu is considering leaving Lokesh to party affairs and thus prepare him to take over the party from him in the future. Chandrababu Naidu is also considering the names of several seniors for the state cabinet, giving due representation to SCs, STs, BCs, minorities and women.
It is not yet known whether Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan will be part of the cabinet or if he will give others a chance. But, whether or not he joins, Jana Sena political affairs committee chairman Nadendla Manohar is a sure candidate for the cabinet.
From BJP, YS Chowdary, P Vishnu Kumar Raju and Sathyakumar Yadav are likely to be in the state cabinet. While Chowdary has won from Vijayawada West Assembly constituency, Vishnukumar Raju won from Visakhapatnam North and Sathyakumar won from Dharmavaram Assembly constituency.
Meanwhile, incidents of political violence were reported from various parts of the state for a second day on Thursday. Violence broke out soon after Lok Sabha and assembly election results were declared in Andhra Pradesh.
