Denying cabinet berth to KTR and Harish Rao gave an impression that KCR will step down as Chief Minister after the 2019 Lok Sabha Polls. TRS Supremo seems to be having no such plans if the indication given to party colleagues is taken into consideration. He seems to have conveyed that Ministerial Berths weren't offered to either KTR or Harish Rao for using their services to the maximum extent for winning 16 MP Seats.
Post the Lok Sabha Polls, Both KTR and Harish Rao will be inducted into the TRS Cabinet. Crucial Portfolios which remained with KCR until then will be allocated to both the dynamic leaders.
Portfolios such as Finance, Revenue, Urban Development, Irrigation, IT and Public Relations remained with KCR. While IT and Urban Development might be allotted for KTR, Finance Ministry & Irrigation could be offered for Harish Rao.
KCR might have realised that there is no scope for Federal Front to form Anti-BJP, Anti-Congress Government. So, He might continue as Telangana CM and play instrumental role in National Politics by joining NDA Government. If that happens, TRS could bag at least couple of crucial Union Cabinet berths.
