Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Thursday dissolved his cabinet following which all the 24 ministers tendered their resignations to the CM. The resignations came after a cabinet meeting held at 3 pm, with sources telling CNN-News18 that the new ministers will take oath on April 11.
Sources said the composition of the new cabinet will primarily focus on representing SC/STs, backward class, and women. They added that the cabinet ministers, who have resigned, will either be appointed as district in-charges or will be accommodated in the party. The list of the new ministers will be officially released on April 10.
According to the sources, Jagan Reddy was a little emotional during the cabinet meeting since it was the last meeting of the present cabinet. “You did your best for the past two and a half plus years. I need experiences and expertise of senior ministers," he told his cabinet colleagues.
On the basis of the CM’s comments, it can be analyzed that 4-5 old faces will continue in the new cabinet.
