Telangana governor ESL Narasimhan has approved the dissolution of the assembly as recommended by CM KC Rao. Governor has asked Rao to continue as caretaker Telangana CM till the new government is formed.
KCR had met the governor earlier to inform him about the Cabinet’s decision to dissolve the state Assembly and go for snap polls . The Assembly elections in Telangana were scheduled to be held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha polls next year.
The speculation about early assembly polls had gained ground with transfers of officials, including IAS officers, during the last several days.
The chief minister in a recent media interaction did not give a direct reply on reports of early assembly election, but had said the Election Commission has the discretion to conduct it within six months of the original schedule.
At recent meeting, Rao expressed hope of creating a better Telangana in future and hinted at increasing pension amounts and promised to address problems of unemployed youth.
