Owing to the allegations of land grabbing of assigned lands, Etela Rajenderâ€™s Health Ministry portfolio was stripped and he was also removed from the Telangana Cabinet Council.
Telangana Chief Minister KCR took over Etelaâ€™s portfolio. However, the Chief Minister did not review the Coviid-19 situation and address the media in the position of state Health Minister so far.
With this, the media reports are abuzz that the Health Ministry portfolio will be allotted to a suitable person within the leaders from the Telangana Rashtra Samithi(TRS).
If we have to take anything from the media reports, Jadcherla MLA C Laxma Reddy, who served as the first health minister of the state after the state was bifurcated might be made the Health Minister.
When the TRS party made it to the government in the first term, Laxma Reddy was made the Health Minister. However, he was not given a chance in the Cabinet in the second term of the government.
No matter what the media reports and TRS circles think in this regard. CM KCRâ€™s decision on appointing the new Health Minister will be final. No one knows, what the Chief Minister has in his mind.
Compared to others, Laxma Reddy will be a hot favourite considering the experience he has as Health Minister. Let us wait and see what happens.
