New Delhi: The expansion of the state cabinet has brought confusion to CM Siddaramaiah and DCM Shivakumar. It seems that even the MLAs who are benefiting from the ministry have had enough. However, several people have tried to join the ministry without giving up. The whole picture has been shifted to Delhi.

Amidst all this, it has been decided to induct former MLA from Manvi taluk of Raichur district, current secretary of AICC NS Bosaiah in Siddaramaiah’s cabinet. But, they are not MLAs! That means he is neither a member of the Legislative Assembly nor a member of the Legislative Council. However, sources said that he has been inducted into the cabinet.

Why choose Bosaraju?

The high command had two reasons for selecting Bosaraju. Former MLA from Manvi, this time he asked his son Ravi Bosaraju for ticket. However, he was not given a ticket. He had given up the ticket demand on the High Command’s recommendation. Congress high command feels sorry for him.

Besides, Bosaraju is in charge of Telangana Congress. Elections will be held in Telangana by the end of this year. So, if Bosaraju is made a minister now, it will have a positive effect on Telangana Congress leaders. The high command believes that it will benefit the Congress there. It is said that this is why he was selected for the ministerial position in Karnataka.
