Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today decided to dissolve the Assembly and seek a fresh mandate earlier than the scheduled polls in April 2019. Rao wants elections to be held along with Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram in December this year. The Chief Minister met Governor ESL Narasimhan and submitted a resolution adopted in the Cabinet meeting held this afternoon where a decision to dissolve the Assembly and call for early polls was taken.
Accepting the resolution, the government asked KCR and his council of ministers to continue in office as “caretaker government” till elections. KCR set the ball rolling Tuesday when top Telangana officials met the Governor where officials hinted of a major decision to be taken during the Cabinet meeting that was held today.
Finance Minister E Rajender had said that the CM decided to hold a public meeting at Husnabad after seeing the success of the ‘Pragati Nivedhana Sabha’ held on Sunday on the outskirts of Hyderabad. “The CM feels that after the success of the Hyderabad meeting, similar meetings should be held in all the Assembly constituencies in which the progress report of the TRS Government would be presented to the people,’” Rajender said.
