Rao, who is popularly known as KCR, met the Governor after the cabinet meeting and informed him of his government’s decision.
Soon after that, Rao held a press conference and announced that his party Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) will contest the elections alone and will kickstart its election campaign from tomorrow.
Rao became the first Chief Minister of Telangana in 2014. The state was formally inaugurated on June 2 in the same year. (ANI)
