Addressing a press conference after announcing dissolution of state Assembly, KCR launched an offensive against the Congress and its chief Gandhi holding the party responsible for bomb blasts, communal violence and other issues that took place during its rule before 2014. He also challenged the Congress to “come on ground” and fight the elections.
“Before 2014 many issues were in Telangana, like bomb blasts, electricity issues, communal violence but now we are free of all this. I am asking Congress leaders to come to ground and fight in the elections and public will give the reply,” he said.
Earlier, Rao announced dissolution of the state Assembly, seven months ahead of the end of its term, paving way for early elections in the state.
Governor ESL Narasimhan approved the Cabinet’s recommendation and asked KCR to continue as the caretaker CM of the state till a new government is formed.
