Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao shifted focus to cabinet expansion after the completion of Lok Sabha Elections and Local Body Polls. He is likely to go for an expansion of cabinet before July 5th, on which date Union Budget will be presented.

Upon retaining power, KCR's swearing-in ceremony happened on December 13th last year. Only Mohammad Ali was inducted into the cabinet on that day. Two months later, KCR increased the count of his cabinet colleagues to 12 by inducting 10 leaders.

In the next cabinet expansion, There is scope for inducting six more members is none of the existing ministers were sacked. KCR had already promised cabinet berths for two Female Leaders.

Sources say, KCR will be offering Ministerial berths to two out of 12 MLAs defected from the Congress Party. While one of them is Sabitha Indra Reddy, The other one could be Vanama Venkateswara Rao.

People would be curious to know whether if KTR and Harish Rao would be inducted into the cabinet. Possibility of MLC Kadiyam Srihari getting inducted into the cabinet can't be ruled out.
