Mahmood Ali was deputy Chief Minister holding the revenue portfolio. As the state budget session is going to begin on February 22nd and ends on February 25th, speculations are doing rounds on who would present the budget.
KCR took his own time to streamline departments, to create more wings under each ministry so that 7 or 8 key ministers could run the state machinery effectively.
