Are the days of Ganta Srinivasa Rao’s days numbered as the minister?
Is Chandrababu unhappy with Ganta’s working style and his alleged failures galore while handing issues? Are Balakrishna and Lokesh backing his bête noire Ch Ayyanna Patrudu?
Sources say the recent report of the survey on the performance of the TDP ministers has given him low rating. Given the reports that there could be a cabinet reshuffle very soon, TDP circles are agog with the stories of a possible removal of Ganta. Reports that both Lokesh and actor-politician N Balakrishna are backing minister Chintakayala Ayyanna Patrudu, who is from the same district and has a running feud with Ganta, is also bad news for him.
Sources say even Chandrababu is unhappy with the way Ganta handled controversies in his ministry. His handling of the department of higher education, Eamcet and the ragging controversy in Acharya Nagarjuna University has reportedly disappointed Chandrababu. Ganta, these days, is clearly a worried man.
