Live Updates: Will Tell You When I Take A Decision, Says KCR On Dissolution Of Assembly

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Meet: Atleast 25 lakh people were expected at the venue

Hyderabad: 

Telangana's ruling party TRS or Telangana Rashtra Samithi hosts its one-of-its-kind "mother of all meetings" in the state today, some 25 kilometres outside the capital city of Hyderabad. The venue chosen for the meet is 2,000 acres of land - dubbed the Pragathi Nivedhana Sabha - in Ranga Reddy district. Overnight rain that left the center stage and carpets soaking wet however did not get in way of supporters who painted the city pink with massive banners placed across the city along with rallies in the district. A cabinet meeting was held before the public meet and sources suggest that there were no talks about the dissolution of the Telangana assembly. 

The meet commemorates the 4th anniversary of Telangana's formation. It was believed that the meet would provide a platform for K Chandrasekhar Rao, popularly known as KCR, to announce the dissolution of the Telangana assembly to pave way for early polls in the state. On key agenda for the meeting, KCR hopes to showcase the achievements of his government in the last four years. TRS leaders said one lakh people were expected at the venue.

KCR's daughter K Kavitha on TRS-BJP relationship:

We have to meet the government. We have to meet the prime minister for various issues especially something like a zonal issue. The urgency of this issue called for a meeting with the PM. Obviously when two politicians meet, there will be talk about politics. BJP and TRS as parties, have no relation. We will certainly see the BJP as an opposition party. When we see the TRS government communicating with the BJP government, we will have cordial relationships for the interest of the state. Otherwise, BJP as a political party is no friend of ours.
