KCR govt dissolves assembly, T'gana Guv asks him to continue as caretaker CM

KCR, Assembly, Telengana

Hyderabad ; Ending weeks of speculation, the Telangana government recommended the dissolution of the state assembly Thursday, official sources said. A resolution recommending the dissolution of the House was adopted at a meeting of the state Cabinet chaired by Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao this afternoon.

Shortly afterwards, Rao drove to Raj Bhavan and handed over the resolution to Governor ESL Narasimhan, who accepted the Cabinet's decision. "The Governor, while accepting the recommendation of the Chief Minister and Council of Ministers has requested K Chandrashekar Rao and his Council of Ministers to continue in office as a caretaker government. Chandrasekhar Rao has agreed to this request," a Raj Bhavan press communique said.

This brings the curtains down on the first elected Legislative Assembly in Telangana. The Council of Ministers led by Rao assumed office on
June 2, 2014, the day Telangana came into existence as the 29th state of India. PTI
