Telangana Deputy Speaker Padma Rao joined the list of ministers Etala Rajendar, Erabelli Dayakar Rao, V Srinivas Goud, Gangula Kamalakar, Gutta Sukhendar who supported the move. All these leaders said that KTR is quite capable of taking up the position and it is the right time that KTR would take up Chief Minister's chair.
KTR did not react much to the recent comments adding strength to the comments. On the other side, Telangana Chief Minister KCR announced that the government of Telangana decided to implement ten percent reservation for the Economically Weaker Section (EWS). The opposition parties have been observing the situations closely and are planning to stage an attack.
