Andhra Cabinet reshuffle in October

The much-awaited reshuffle of the State Cabinet may not take place for some more time to come.

According to indications, the revamp is now possible only in October, as the leadership in Delhi is currently engaged in tackling a host of other important and messy issues, particularly Kashmir and CWG.

Chief Minister K Rosaiah is expected to visit Delhi only during the first or second week of October after the games take off and he has so far not received any signal from the bosses to travel to the capital.

It was believed that both the revamp of the PCC and the Cabinet would happen towards the end of September, soon after the reshuffle of AICC. But Congress president Sonia Gandhi could not take up revamp of the party structure, including naming new incharges for States, because of her preoccupation with other issues. "Changes in the State, whether in the party or government, are possible only after the new AICC incharge is named as the incumbent, Veerappa Moily, is going to be changed," a highlyplaced source said. Rosaiah, sources said, had also not made up his mind on whom to induct or drop as he would like to first get a sense of Delhi’s thinking on the same.

The same is being said about Praja Rajyam joining the government as it is still not clear whether the Congress Central leadership would like to exercise the option right now or wait for some more time.

Though a section in the Congress is claiming that there would be a deputy CM from Telangana and a PCC chief from the Coastal region, sources said it was not final and the permutations and combinations may change at the last minute.
