KCR dissolves Telangana assembly 8 months before full term to have polls by year-end



KCR dissolves Telangana assembly 8 months before full term to have polls by year-end

Telangana council of ministers headed by chief minister K Chandrasekhara Rao, commonly called simply KCR, on Thursday, September 6 approved a resolution to dissolve the Telangana state legislative assembly almost eight months ahead of its five-year term, recommending early elections.

Governor ESL Narasimhan, accepting the recommendation, asked Rao and his council of ministers to continue as care-taker government till the polls.

“In consequence of the notification issued vide G O Ms No. 46, Legislature Secretariat, dated 6th September, 2018, dissolving the Telangana State Legislative Assembly with immediate effect, the Governor of Telangana hereby authorises Chief Minister Sri Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao and his colleges in the council of ministers to continue in office as a Caretaker Government of Telangana,” chief secretary Shailendra Kumar Joshi said in a notification.

The governor is set to forward the cabinet’s resolution to the Election Commission for approval.

There were indications of such a move, with KCRhinting about it over the past few couple of months. He is believed to have consulted Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his intentions to be able to go for polls along with Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh in December this year.

Telangana’s assembly elections were set to take place concurrently with the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Addressing the press at the TRS party office, KCR said the cabinet had decided to bring the election forward to end the “political fragility” in the state. He said allegations levelled by opposition parties against his government were “totally baseless”. “These allegations are hurting the state’s growth. To put them to rest, the cabinet has decided to call for elections. The people’s court will now decide,” he said.

The CM said that he had personally spoken to the chief election commissioner and said the election notification is expected in October. “There is no confusion about elections. It will be held along with the four other states, either in late in November or first week of December,” he said.

KCR released a list of 105 candidates. The remaining 14 would soon be finalised, he said. Two sitting MLAs have been dropped. “The candidates were finalised only after intensive surveys. Surveys show that TRS will get at least 50% vote share in 100 constituencies. Even if all opposition parties join hands, we will still win those seats,” he said.

The party would contest the elections alone, he said. “MIM is a friendly party for us. They offered their support voluntarily and we work together,” he said. He rejected claims that he was trying to inch closer to the BJP, stating, “We are a secular party, there is no question of joining hands with the BJP. Amit Shah had also rejected the possibility of aligning with us.” His relationship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi was limited to governance, he said, adding there were no political connotations to his meetings with him.

The CM attacked the Congress, which he said was “Telangana’s enemy number one”. He criticised the party’s role in the creation of Andhra Pradesh state in 1956 and also for its delay in bifurcating it. The TRS government had been undoing Congress’s misgovernance towards the people of Telangana, he claimed. Rubbishing claims that Congress was resurgent in the state, he questioned why the party was “afraid” of going to polls early. He also labelled Congress president Rahul Gandhi as the “biggest buffoon in the country”.

The Telangana government headed by KCR was formed on June 2, 2014 on the day of formal division of the undivided Andhra Pradesh while the elections were held in April-May period in the same year.

The KCR-led Telangana Rashtra Samithi(TRS) reckons that having state elections with Lok Sabha elections would not be favourable to it, as national issues and Modi-led BJP’s campaign would drown out its ‘development and welfare schemes’. Bringing the elections forward would allow Rao and his party to navigate both the elections appropriately.

Two people died while three people lost their eyesight in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur after consuming spurious liquor, as per the police.



Two people died while three people lost their eyesight in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur after consuming spurious liquor, as per the police.

Police have received information that two people died after their health suddenly deteriorated. In the prima facie inquiry, it has been told that they both had consumed country-made liquor. We have arrested two people. Further probe underway, the Superintendent of Police Abhishek Dixit said after two people died after allegedly consuming spurious liquor in Muzaffarpur.

According to reports, one of the victims, Dharmendra Ram, has revealed that he consumed spurious alcohol after purchasing from Shiv Chandra Paswan, who generally sells adulterated and low-quality liquor, due to which he lost his eyesight.  

He started losing his vision after consuming two glasses of low-quality liquor, which cost him Rs 100.

Police, based on the victim’s statement, have arrested two people. One of the arrested persons is a local resident and has been jailed in the past as well in a liquor-related case.  

For interrogation, police have also detained accused Shiv Chandra Paswan’s wife and daughter.

Police confirmed that the deaths and loss of eyesight happened due to the consumption of spurious alcohol.  

Earlier this year in April, a shocking case was reported from Bihar’e Motihari district where at least 5 people died after consuming illicitly made liquor while twelve others were rushed to a local hospital in critical condition.

The incident was reported from Laxmipur Village of Motihari district in Bihar. The cases of spurious liquor creating hazardous health problems and death of people in Bihar have been in focus for quite some months now. Earlier in January this year it was reported from Siwan that four people died post consuming the spurious liquor after which the Police arrested 16 people who were involved in the storage and trading of alcohol in the state.

Purchase, sale and trade of liquor stands banned in Bihar since April 2016 after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar took this move to impose a complete prohibition on the sale and consumption of alcohol in the state.

Mann Ki Baat: PM Modi says India-Middle East-Europe corridor will become future basis of world trade

The India-Middle East-Europe corridor will become the basis of world trade for hundreds of years to come and history will always remember that the corridor was initiated on Indian soil, said PM Modi.



Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his 105th episode of Mann Ki Baat said that the India-Middle East-Europe corridor will become the basis of world trade for hundreds of years to come and history will always remember that the corridor was initiated on Indian soil.

On September 24 in his monthly Mann Ki Baat, PM Modi also talked about Chandrayaan-3’s success and urged all citizens to participate in the Chandrayaan-3 Mahaquiz, a unique opportunity to learn and celebrate India’s lunar mission. Let’s embark on this cosmic adventure together, he added.  

PM Modi said throughout the year, programmes related to G20 were held at numerous universities in the country. Now in this series, another exciting programme is about to take place in Delhi, which is G20 University Connect Programme, he said.

Speaking about World Tourism Day, he said two days from now, 27th September, is World Tourism Day. Some people view tourism just as a means of touring and travelling, but a very big aspect of tourism is related to employment, the Prime Minister further said.

He further talked about temples in Karnataka. PM Modi said a few days ago, that Shantiniketan and the holy Hoysala temple of Karnataka have been declared world heritage sites by UNESCO. He extended his greetings to the countrymen on this feat.

During the G20 Summit in New Delhi, US principal deputy national security advisor Jon Finer announced an unprecedented and ground-breaking infrastructure initiative involving a railway and shipping corridor that will improve trade, energy, and digital connectivity.

Speaking to reporters, Finer drew an indirect but striking comparison between China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the project, saying it will close a significant infrastructure gap and be high-standards, transparent, sustainable, non-coercive and based on the demand signal from the region instead of being an imposition.

BRI is heavily attacked for entangling nations in unmanageable debt, as well as for being opaque, forceful, and sacrificing standards.

Finer claimed that the project is consistent with the greater West Asian agenda of the Joe Biden administration.
