Sabita Indra Reddy is the first woman Home Minister of Andhra Pradesh. She was often referred to as ‘chellamma’ or younger sister by Jagan’s father YSR Reddy, who died in a chopper crash in 2009, and often his pet schemes would be launched from her constituency of Chevella in Ranga Reddy district. Sabita has been named for her alleged actions of omission and commission during her stint as mines minister. She has distanced herself from controversial decisions of that time, saying she was in the dark about the contents of certain files in her ministry.
