Telangana Chief Minister Announces Candidates For 105 Assembly Constituencies: Highlights

Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao said his party had given him the power to decide on early polls

Hyderabad: 

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao announced the dissolution of the Telangana assembly to clear the decks for early polls.

On Sunday, amid speculation about an announcement during the 'mother of all rallies' in Ranga Reddy district, the chief minister had said that his party has empowered him to take a decision on early elections - his latest hint on the issue. "I will take a decision soon (on assembly dissolution) and then announce what I will do if TRS is elected again," he said before launching into the government's achievements and welfare measures in what was virtually a poll pitch.

The term of the Telugu Rashtra Samiti (TRS) government wass till May 2019, and elections, as per schedule, would have happened along with Lok Sabha elections. Chief Minister KCR last weekend had gone to Delhi and met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and others, triggering speculation that he had discussed early elections in the state.
