Following the big win by the Congress party, attention is now on the choices for Cabinet positions in Khammam district with Chief Minister-elect Revanth Reddy at the helm. The district, crucial to the party’s success, is facing the task of deciding which leaders will take on key roles in the Cabinet.
Mallu Bhattivikramamarka is a strong candidate, having won four times in a row from the Madhira constituency. His loyalty to the party and experience as an MLC and Deputy Speaker of the Legislative Assembly make him a front-runner for an important role in the upcoming cabinet. Vikramarka’s statewide padayatra and effective representation in the Legislative Assembly boost his chances, making him a key player in the race for a significant cabinet position.
Tummala Nageswara Rao, recognized for his development work with over 17 years in ministerial roles, brings a wealth of experience. Joining the Congress on Revanth Reddy’s invitation and winning for the sixth time from Khammam, Tummala is seen as a potential candidate for a cabinet position. His success as an MLA and extensive ministerial experience in different governments highlight his credibility and potential contribution to the cabinet’s work and social dynamics.
Ponguleti Srinivasa Reddy, a newcomer to legislative assembly elections, won a big mandate from the Paleru constituency. His strategic role in building coalitions, gaining public support, and contributing to the party’s success makes him a contender for a ministerial post. Ponguleti’s good relations with AICC leaders, financial support for the party, and influence across both districts enhance his candidacy.
The question of whether Khammam district will get three ministerial posts adds excitement to the decision-making process. There’s speculation about potential compromises if multiple leaders are not accommodated.
