Andhra Pradesh, the state with the highest number of Congress MPs, is likely to get a lion's share in Sunday's cabinet reshuffle.
Actor-turned-politician K. Chiranjeevi and former chief minister K. Vijayabhaskara Reddy's son K. Suryaprakash Reddy are among five Congress MPs who are likely to be inducted into the cabinet.
Killi Krupa Rani, Balram Naik and Sarve Satyanarayana are also likely to get cabinet berths. Barring Chiranjeevi, who is a member of the Rajya Sabha, others are members of the lower house of parliament.
Satyanarayana and Balram Naik are from Telangana region while Chiranjeevi and Krupa Rani are from coastal Andhra Pradesh. Suryaprakash Reddy is from Rayalaseema region.
The central leadership is reported to have advised them to be available in the national capital Sunday.
