Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao hinted ample prominence he is going to offer to Muslims by making Mahmood Ali sworn-in as Deputy CM of Telangana on Thursday. In fact, He is the only TRS Leader to be lucky enough to take part in the swearing-in ceremony along with KCR.
What portfolio did KCR offer to Mahmood Ali who handled Revenue & Minority Welfare in the last term? It's the crucial Home Ministry which was taken care by Nayini Narasimha Reddy in the first term of TRS Rule.
Nayini remained loyal to KCR for over a decade. That is why he was appointed as Telangana's First Home Minister. Whereas, TRS Supremo decided against offering Musheerabad ticket to Nayini's Nephew in the recently concluded polls. And now, KCR has sidelined even Nayini too.
Mahmood Ali's induction to TRS Cabinet as Deputy CM & Home Minister is a great move by TRS Leadership. In fact, KCR made both KTR and Harish Rao wait along with other MLAs for the cabinet expansion. That's a strategic move to counter the allegations of Family Rule & Monopoly. KCR scored a sixer with the first shot itself. We have to wait & see how the rest of the cabinet would shape up..!
