More than two months after he took oath as Telangana Chief Minister, K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) on Tuesday expanded his Cabinet with the induction 10 ministers. Governor E S L Narasimhan administered the oath at a ceremony at Raj Bhavan. The newly inducted ministers are Etela Rajender, A Indrakaran Reddy, G Jagadish Reddy, Talasani Srinivas Yadav, Vemula Prashanth Reddy, Koppula Eashwar, Errabelli Dayakar Rao, CH Malla Reddy, S Niranjan Reddy and V Srinivas Goud.

It is unclear what held back KCR from expanding his Cabinet despite his party returning to power with a thumping majority of 88 of 119 seats. So far, KCR has been running the show alone. With no Cabinet to hold meetings, KCR was clearing files related to all departments.
