After the allocation of portfolios, reports said Vatti Vasantha Kumar sent in his resignation to the chief minister, dissatisfied with the tourism portfolio given to him. Several other ministers also were said to be upset and reports said they too were mulling resignations.
Among them are Dharmana Prasada Rao (roads & buildings), Botsa Satyanarayana (transport), Komatireddy Venkat Reddy (infrastructure), Mukesh Goud (marketing), Ponnala Lakshmaiah (IT) and P Shankar Rao (handlooms). Ponnala is said to be peeved about being moved to IT after running major irrigation for six years. There is already discontent among MLAs like JC Diwakara Reddy who have been left out of the ministry.
The question now is what will Jagan do with this simmering discontent?
