Dr J. Geeta Reddy as Dy Chief Minister?
The Chief Minister, K. Rosaiah, is likely to elevate the tourism minister, Dr J. Geeta Reddy, to the post of deputy chief minister in the Cabinet reshuffle slated to take place before the commencement of the Assembly budget session next month. He may also induct the Speaker, N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, in the Cabinet as the finance minister.
According to the usually reliable sources Rosaiah is proposing the deputy chief minister-ship to revive a key facet of the Gentlemen’s Agreement of 1956.
Rosaiah will put his reshuffle proposals before the Congress president, Sonia Gandhi, when he goes to Delhi to attend the Chief Ministers’ conference on price rise on January 27.
