`Thondaman is furious over the delay in giving him a genuine ministry. He is not happy with what he got,` a well informed source said.
Referring to the Youth Empowerment Ministry, the source said that the minister feels there was no purpose in retaining that portfolio.
Political sources said that Thondaman had indicated what he desired and the president agreed to consider the possibility after the Budget.
