Andhra Pradesh Know Your Minister: Adimulapu Suresh

Adimulapu Suresh - Sakshi Post

Amaravati: Civil servant-turned-politician Adimulapu Suresh has been sworn in as the cabinet minister for YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and will be the state’s education minister.

He represents Santhanuthalapadu Constituency in Andhra Pradesh which is a SC reserved constituency.

Born on 27 April, 1964, Adimulapu started his political innings in 2009 by quitting his designation as 'Civil Servant' from Indian Railways. Former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy chose him as a Member of Legislative Assembly for Yerragondapalem Constituency in the 2009 elections. He won the seat. Later, he was elected as Member of Legislative Assembly for the Santhanuthalapadu Constituency.

The YSR Congress inducted 25 new ministers on Saturday into the Y S Jaganmohan Reddy's Council of Ministers in Andhra Pradesh in what they termed as "socially-inclusive Cabinet." The new government will have five deputy CMs in an unprecedented move.

Welcoming the decision of Jagan to have five deputy chief ministers, Adimulapu said he has struck a fine balance by giving representation to every community, particularly deprived classes.

In line with his electoral promise, YS Jaganmohan Reddy gave Cabinet berths to seven legislators from the backward classes, five from the Scheduled Castes, one each from the Scheduled Tribes and Muslims, and four each from the Kapu and the Reddy communities.

State Governor E S L Narasimhan administered the oath of office and secrecy to the new ministers at a glittering public function adjacent to the Secretariat at Velagapudi in capital Amaravati.
