Kerala top cop to join KCR's cabinet?

1997 batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer, G Lakshman is likely to become the new IT minister of Telangana. Lakshman who is currently working as inspector general of the social policing and traffic wing of the Kerala Police, was born in Khammam and has 14 years of service left.

Telangana CM KCR had a word about Lakshman with his Kerala counter-part and the IPS officer is likely to quit from his services later this month.

The more surprising element is Lakshman would replace KTR as IT minister and this was confirmed by the bureaucrat himself speaking to Malayalam media.

In case of KCR allots IT portfolio to Lakshman, what would KTR do? This adds fuel to the fire of rumours that KTR would become the new CM of Telangana. This speculation was making huge noise  since two months or so.

The TRS working president garnered a good popularity among the IT working professionals for doing everything to push the sector to be the best in the country. He already heads municipal administration, industries and commerce portfolios and has more number of departments than any other minister in KCR cabinet.
