Andhra Pradesh chief min­is­ter

Y.S. Ja­gan Mo­han Reddy has kicked up a storm by cre­at­ing a jumbo-sized board for the Tiru­mala Tiru­pati Dev­asthanams (TTD). Not only is the num­ber up from 19 to 36, in­clud­ing seven spe­cial in­vi­tees, many mem­bers face CBI and ED probes. Two are co-ac­cused with Reddy him­self while some oth­ers are nom­i­nees of his men­tor, Te­lan­gana chief min­is­ter K. Chan­drashekar Rao. Among the spe­cial in­vi­tees is a Chen­nai-based min­ing ty­coon whom Ja­gan had ac­cused in 2016 of be­ing a ‘be­nami’ of Tel­ugu De­sam Party chief N. Chan­drababu Naidu. The TDP is wait­ing for Reddy to ex­plain this U-turn.
