Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy was the first person in the country to have a jumbo team of five deputy CMs in 2019.

To discuss cabinet formation, a senior BJP functionary said the deputy CM would be selected from five major social groups – SC, ST, Vokkaliga, Lingayat and OBC. According to him, the Lingayat-Brahmin party will soon make an all-Hindu appeal to all communities as it struggles to cross the magic figure of 113 seats in the assembly elections since 2008.

The party’s central leadership has kept former CM BS Yediyurappa and Lingayats happy by making Basavaraj Bommai the chief minister. Now, they want to ensure that key groups among other communities – especially SC/ST and OBC – are not overlooked.
