Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao recommended dissolution of the state Assembly, paving the way for early polls in the state. The term of the Telangana Assembly ends in May next year.
KCR is headed to the Governor's house to submit his government's recommendation for dissolving the assembly. The decision to hold early elections is being taken to ensure that the mood during general elections next year do not overshadow the assembly polls.
Meanwhile, Congress has said it will approach the courts and Election Commission against holding of the elections till the time revised list of voters is published. TRS would like the state Assembly polls to be held together with Rajasthan, MP and Chhattisgarh slated for December this year.
The mega rally- Pragathi Nivedana Sabha held on September 2 was seen as show of strength before the key announcement.
