Crucial Telangana cabinet meet on Thursday

ADVERTISEMENT
The Telangana cabinet will hold a crucial meeting on Thursday afternoon to take a decision on recommending dissolution of the assembly to pave way for early elections.
 
Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has convened the cabinet at 1 p.m. at Pragati Bhavan, his official residence which was a beehive of activity since morning with the arrival of ministers and top officials.
 
The cabinet will adopt a resolution recommending to Governor E. S. L. Narasimhan to dissolve the Assembly. 
 
After the cabinet meeting, Rao will drive to Raj Bhavan to meet the Governor and convey the cabinet decision, said sources in the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS).
 
KCR, as the TRS chief is popularly known, will address a news conference at 2.30 p.m. at the Telangana Bhavan, the party headquarters, to announce the cabinet decision. He is also likely to announce the first list of TRS candidates.
 
The Assembly term is till May 2019 and elections in normal course would be conducted along with the Lok Sabha polls.
 
TRS sources said KCR chose September 6 for the key decision as he considers '6' his lucky number. This is the reason cited for not taking the decision during the cabinet meeting on September 2, which was held hours before the massive public meeting organised by the party to sound the poll bugle.
 
KCR will formally launch the TRS election campaign with a public meeting at Husnabad in Siddipet district on Friday.
 
Christened 'Prajala Aasirwada Sabha', this will be the first of 100 public meetings planned by TRS over the next 50 days.
 
Political observers said TRS is keen for early elections as the party believes that simultaneous elections to Assembly and Lok Sabha may not help it properly highlight welfare and developmental works undertaken by it during the last four years.
