Lokesh Gets Panchayat Raj, IT Portfolios

Amaravati: Nara Lokesh was given the prime portfolios of Panchayat Raj and Information Technology. Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu allocated portfolios to the Ministers here on Monday afternoon. The Chief Minister seemed to have put in a lot of exercise in allocating portfolios. While he had changed the portfolios of many of the Ministers, he did not touch the portfolios of the two Deputy Chief Ministers, N China Rajappa and K E Krishna Murthy, and that of Devineni Umamaheswara Rao, P Narayana, Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, Ganta Srinivasa Rao and the two Ministers from the Bharatiya Janata Party – Kamineni Srinivas and P Manikyala Rao.

The Chief Minister had moved Prathipati Pulla Rao, Siddha Raghava Rao, Paritala Sunitha, Kollu Ravindra, K Atchennaidu and Ch Ayyannapathrudu to the new portfolios. While Prathipati Pullarao is moved to the Civil Supplies, Siddha Raghava Rao is made the new Minister for Forests. Ayyanna Pathrudu who was holding the Panchayat Raj portfolio was moved to the Roads and Buildings as his portfolio was given to Nara Lokesh. Paritala Sunitha, who held the Civil Supplies earlier would now look after the women and child welfare.

The youngest member of the Cabinet, Akhila Priya was given the Tourist portfolio, while the two other defectors from YSR Congress, C Adinarayana Reddy and N Amarnatha Reddy were given the Marketing and Industries portfolios respectively. Kaluva Srinivasulu is made the Minister for Information and Public Relations.
