Legislative council member Ramchandraiah and Anakapalle MLA Srinivasa Rao, both members of erstwhile Praja Rajyam Party, were inducted into the council of ministers on Thursday.

The Infrastructure and Investment portfolio was earlier held by Komatireddy Venkat Reddy and the Endowment was handled by Jupally Krishna Rao. The posts fell vacant following their resignation for the cause of Telangana.

However, the Chief Minister persuaded Chiranjeevi that he would consider his request during another expansion. The Chief Minister announced the portfolios at his Camp Office on Friday where he hosted breakfast for the newly inducted ministers.

Both Srinivasa rao and Ramachandraaiah said they have no reservations in taking up any portfolio allotted by the Chief Minister.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister has retained the Handlooms and Textiles portfolio which fell vacant due to the sacking of Dr P Shankar Rao. (INN)
