Three-time parliamentarian of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) from Srikakulam Lok Sabha constituency Kinjarapu Rammohan Naidu will likely be inducted into the Union Cabinet of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which will be sworn in on Sunday, party leaders familiar with the matter said on Friday. The TDP is expected to get a Cabinet minister post, besides two posts of ministers of state in the Modi cabinet, though the party has pitched for four berths – two Cabinet and two MoS posts. “Besides, there is a possibility of the party being offered the deputy speaker post,” a party leader said on condition of anonymity. Rammohan Naidu (37) entered the politics in 2012, after the death of his father Kinjarapu Yerran Naidu, who served as the Union Cabinet minister in Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda and IK Gujral cabinets between 1996 and 1998, holding the portfolio of rural development and employment.
