Governor of Telangana ESL Narasimhan on Thursday dissolved the state assembly following the recommendation from Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao-led cabinet. The decision set the tone for an early election in the southern state. However, the Governor asked KCR to continue as caretaker chief minister until the new government is formed.
Soon after the announcement, KCR addressed the media about the dissolution, and listed the Telangana government's achievements and praised his cabinet for ‘working tirelessly’. KCR said that the economic growth in Telangana was unparallel. The governance in the state had received ‘international acclaim’, he added.
KCR said that the state will go to polls in November, and that the results can be expected by December. “Will declare 105 candidates for the polls, after extensive survey of the current MLAs,” he said. He added that calling for early polls was ‘not a political move’.
KCR thanked his MLAs for supporting his decision to dissolve the Assembly. He said ‘99.99 percent’ of the policies had been implemented by the state government.
