‘Dismissal of women ministers .. Poetry soon’

3

Prime Time Zone, Telangana Bureau : Will there be a key change in Telangana soon? .. Will there be a cabinet expansion soon? .. Will there be an expulsion of two women in the KCR cabinet soon? Will KCR’s daughter Kalvakuntla become the poetry minister in their place? That is, the answer is a resounding yes.

BJP leader NVSS Prabhakar’s latest remarks that Satyavati Rathore and Sabita Indrareddy, who are already ministers, should be ready to sacrifice their posts to make room for poetry in the cabinet have caused a stir in Telangana political circles. Prabhakar Josyam said that Padma Devender Reddy, who was the Deputy Speaker in the last term, was wronged by not being given a place in the cabinet this time and that injustice will continue in the future. Prabhakar’s remarks sparked outrage on International Women’s Day. Prabhakar commented that this would be the last time for the two women ministers to celebrate Women’s Day as cabinet ministers.

This is not the first time BJP leaders have made comments on the internal affairs of the TRS party. BJP state president Bandi Sanjay’s comment that former BJP minister Itala Rajender had all the credentials to take over as chief minister was controversial. Now it is interesting to note that former BJP MLA NVSS Prabhakar is making comments targeting two women ministers. It remains to be seen to what extent the comments made by Mari Prabhakar will come true.
