Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu's son Nara Lokesh

In the first expansion-cum-reshuffle after coming to power in 2014, Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday inducted his son Nara Lokesh and 10 others into the Cabinet, while dropping five Ministers. The recent elections to the MLCs, where Nara Lokesh was elected, has enabled Naidu to induct his son into the cabinet.

Governor ESL Narasimhan administrated the swearing-in of new ministers in Amaravati.

Senior party leader Bojjala Gopala Krishna Reddy, who was among the five dropped ministers, resigned as MLA, while a few other TDP legislators are reportedly planning to follow suit after consulting their close aides.

White House counters investigation with its own allegations
Farkas says, that there was clearly an attempt to do something politically motivated with the intelligence out there", he said. Cohen-Watnick was a protege of Flynn, having worked for him at the Pentagon's intelligence shop.

A few Desam MLAs too began sulking after being left out of the reshuffle in favour of the defectors but reaffirmed their loyalty to the party after Naidu spoke to them.

Questioning the decision, Chintamaneni supporters alleged that Pitani had put cases against several TDP workers during Congress rule, they asked how could a person who was behind cases on TDP workers could get ministry in TDP rule. The youngest minister in Chandrababu Naidu's cabinet is Allagadda MLA Bhooma Akhil Priya. The cabinet's strength has now increased to 26. Significantly, the Telugu Desam party objected inducting defected MLAs into the Cabinet in Telangana state, where some MLAs, who were elected on TDP ticket later joined the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS).

Since February 2016, 21 out of the 67 MLAs of the YSRC have crossed over to the TDP.

Rama Subba Reddy, senior TDP leader from Jammalamadugu in Kadapa, strongly opposed the inclusion of Adinarayana Reddy in the Cabinet and threatened to quit the party.

In Kadapa district, the home turf of Jaganmohan Reddy, there was some resentment among those opposed to Adinarayana Reddy, who has been made a minister. After taking oath Mr. Lokesh sought blessings from his father and the Governor. Her father Bhuma Nagi Reddy, who was representing Nandyal constituency in the Assembly, died of cardiac arrest earlier this month.

Those dropped were Palle Raghunath Reddy, R. Kishore Babu, B. Gopalakrishna Reddy, P. Sujata and K. Mirnalini.
