Hyderabad: “There is no scope for Jagan coverts in the cabinet and all the ministers must be loyal to the Chief Minister and the party high command”, said the Minister for Rural Development, Mr Dokka Manikhya Varaprasada Rao.
Speaking to mediapersons in the Secretariat on Friday, the Minister said that every one in the cabinet should work as per the wish and direction of the Chief Minister. The functioning of Mr Kiran Kumar Reddy was very well as he was encouraging the ministers in carrying out their duties and responsibilities. There are no Jagan Mohan Reddy’s coverts in the Kiran Kumar Reddy Cabinet, he asserted.
When the claim of the Minister for Transport, Mr Bosta Satyanarayana, that he was also a covert in the cabinet to his notice, the Minister felt that his colleague spoke in different context and satirically responded to a question shot by media persons.
“The ministers and leaders of the Congress party expressed their views before State party in-charge, Mr Gulam Nabi Azad, on strengthening of the party, Telangana agitation and United Andhra demand. It was all common when a party in-charge comes to the State”, the minister maintained. (NSS)
