The tension between the legislators and party activists can be observed from the following statement which, party activist gave: “Several legislators are seeking nominated posts. The CM should go for one man/woman, one post. He should give corporation posts to party leaders and activists and not legislators who have already got tickets and are getting paid. This will ensure justice to all,”
But the CM seems in no mood to listen to such statements. It has come to light that recently the CM had snubbed a minister for advocating the dual roles to the legislators.
With the state cabinet expanded, and the TSPSC constituted the only way out for the not included aspirants is to settle for the nominated posts in various corporations and committees.
The nominated posts ensure a car, salary and other perks, which has been attracting many people.
The various posts to be filled are the chairmanships of RTC, HMDA, mineral development corporation, HACA, TIIC, housing corporation, TCOB, KUDA and women’s commission to name a few.
Several MLAs including new entrants like Teegala Krishna Reddy, TRS politburo member Ramamohan and others are eyeing the HMDA vice-chairman post and RTC chairman posts.
With the CM in no mood to entertain the requests, the aspirants are making a bee line to the IT minister KTR and Irrigation minister T Harish Rao.
