They included MLAs Kova Laxmi, who was a strong contender for Cabinet berth in the expansion, D. Vinay Bhaskar, Jalagam Venkata Rao and V. Srinivas Goud.
KCR also nominated S. Niranjan Reddy who unsuccessfully contested the Assembly elections from Wanaparthy as the vice-chairman of Telangana planning board.
Earlier, Mr. Rao consoled the sulking Dharmapuri MLA Koppula Easwar even as the latter’s supporters laid siege to the TRS office here.
