The cabinet expansion of Telangana CM KCR on Sunday has thrown open a new question in TRS whether the ‘rift’ between KCR’s family and T Harish Rao has ended ? Or it was an attempt by KCR to plug the divide in the party. KCR took not only Harish Rao into his cabinet but allotted him an all-important portfolio of finance, By inducting his relatives and two women Saniya Indra Reddy and Sathyavsthi Rathod ,both from Congress and TDP ,KCR has once again given full marks for dissidents KCR had both his son KCR and nephew Harish away from cabinet for the past nine months in second term in December 2018, Harish’s exclusion fuelled speculations that KCR’s family did this only to sideline Harish both in government and the party and to pave way for smooth takeover of party and government by KCR’s son, when KCR decides to retire from politics.


This speculations spread like wild fire after KTR was promoted as party’s working president by KCR while not giving any party position to Harish.However, the latest expansion done by KCR by inducting both KTR and Harish into his cabinet was expected to put an end to these rumours at least for the time being. But Harish supporters within TRS are learnt to be upset over KCR giving finance portfolio to Harish for a mass leader of a stature of Harish as it has no contact with common people and he will be confined to be a “Secretariat minister’, unlike earlier when Harish was irrigation minister in KCR’s first cabinet, which brought him good recognition as a minister who speeded up Kaleshwaram project, Mission Kakatiya etc. Will Harish be happy to work wholeheartedly in a department which gives him no public contact and party recognition? Will he and his supporters feel happy and work wholeheartedly for the government and party?

If the sparks of revolt by some ministers, MLAs and MPs subsided now , it would mean anhsndiwork Of Harish followers .If not the dissidence in party could not be diagnosed and silenced even after cabinet expansion it meant that the revolt,t in TRS would finally eat the KCR family .
