AP Cabinet 2.0: Jagan Follows Samajika Nyayam

The new and revamped cabinet under Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan now has an amalgamation of senior and experienced leaders as well as fresh faces with an aim to bring out balanced governance. Jagan believes that both expertise from seniors and innovative ideas from fresh leaders are indispensable to forming people-oriented governance.

Meanwhile, the previous ministers will be given responsibilities in the party so they can make use of their experience to ensure the party’s victory in the upcoming assembly and general elections in 2024. Jagan, who always gave representation to the SC, ST, minorities and BCs is being continued in this cabinet as well.

In 2019, Jagan formed his cabinet, with 56 per cent of his 25 ministers SCs, STs, BCs, and minorities. This time, the Chief Minister has increased their representation to 68 per cent. The list of Ministers likely to be inducted into the AP Cabinet for the coming two years are:
