He is not a Minister, not even an MLA. But, to get anything done involving the second most important man in Andhra Pradesh Cabinet, you have to contact him. He is so important that even the district's top officials are consulting him before finalising Deputy Chief Minister's tour.
He is brother of the senior Minister. He has no post or position of power, but the administration of this Rayalaseema district kowtows before him. When he visits any area, the officials treat him like a Minister and throw protocol to winds. Such is the power of this man that he recently got a principled police officer transferred just because he tried to work independently.
