TDP MP Rammohan Naidu likely to be inducted in Modi Cabinet

| @indiablooms | 08 Jun 2024, 09:30 am

Three-time parliamentarian of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) from Srikakulam Lok Sabha constituency Kinjarapu, Rammohan Naidu, may be inducted in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Cabinet which will be sworn in on Sunday, media reports said.

The party might also get two ministers of state posts in the government.

“Besides, there is a possibility of the party being offered the deputy speaker post,” a party leader told Hindustan Times on condition of anonymity.

Who is Rammohan Naidu?

Rammohan Naidu won the Indian general election in 2014, 2019 and 2024 as a Telugu Desam Party (TDP) candidate.

He joined politics in 2012 after the death of his father Kinjarapu Yerran Naidu.

President Droupadi Murmu Friday invited Narendra Modi, chosen as leader of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), to form the next union government, days after the coalition comfortably won the 2024 Lok Sabha election.

Modi and the members of his new cabinet will take the oath of office at 6 pm Sunday.

A statement from Rashtrapati Bhavan said Murmu had "satisfied herself on the basis of various letters of support received, that the BJP-led NDA alliance... is in a position to command a majority support of the newly constituted 18th Lok Sabha and form a stable government..."

The communique said it had, therefore, appointed Narendra Modi as Prime Minister of India.

Speaking outside the Rashtrapati Bhavan, Modi said the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA will form a strong, stable, and growth-oriented government.

Modi will be the second politician after Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru to become Prime Minister for the third consecutive term.

However, unlike his previous two terms, Modi this time required the support of his allies to form a government as the BJP stopped at 240, 32 short of the majority mark (272).

The TDP (16 seats), JDU (12 seats), Eknath Shinde faction of Shiv Sena (7 seats) and Chirag Paswan's Lok Janshakti Party-Ram Vilas (5 seats) have emerged as the kingmakers.
