Amaravati: The TDP circles in Andhra Pradesh are abuzz with speculations of a likely expansion or reshuffle of state council of ministers around mid-January.
Speculations are rife that one of the inductees may be Nara Lokesh, son of Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. He is likely to be given the Information Technology and Municipal Administration departments.
The exercise may be carried out around Makar Sankranti festival, before the Chief Minister's scheduled trip to Switzerland beginning January 15, or it might happen in the first week of February.
At least two MLAs of the lone opposition YSR Congress, who switched sides to the TDP in the last few months, are expected to be given Cabinet berths.
