The Telangana Congress claimed that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao may have dropped his plans to go for early Assembly elections in the state after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Election Commission (EC) did not back his idea.
There has been speculation that the CM KCR may dissolve the Assembly, favouring the state elections along with that in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram later this year.
“On early polls, Modi and EC have not given him (Rao) permission. As a result of that, he has gone back; he actually wanted to dissolve the House and he had told so to many of his close aides.” Said Sravan Dasoju, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee chief spokesperson.
He also charged KCR of being a ‘katputhli’ (puppet) and ‘slave’ of PM Modi, he said the Chief Minister’s “remote control” is with Prime Minister, who did not say ‘yes’ to his idea of early poll.
