KCR to contest Assembly elections from Gajwel

Ending speculations over his decision to contest elections, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday announced he would fight the Assembly polls from Gajwel in Medak district.

Addressing a press conference at the party office here, he reiterated that alliance with the Congress is a closed chapter. He said he would kick-off his campaign from Karimnagar and informed the press that he would announce his decision on contesting the Lok Sabha polls and his choice of seat in two days.

Earlier in the day, KCR dashed off a letter to governor ESL Narasimhan, asking him to cancel irrigation projects under scanner for irregularities like Dummugudem and Nagarjuna Sagar tail pond.

He made it clear that the TRS government (in Telangana) would not spare anyone, including former irrigation minister Ponnala Lakshmaiah and former chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, for alleged irregularities in Dummugudem project. “Ponnala appreciated Dummugudem, which denied a single drop of irrigation waters to Telangana,” KCR said.

He said nine more MLAs from Congress would join the TRS. “But we are unable to accommodate them, due to commitment given to our party workers,” KCR said.

He said TRS would frame the syllabus on the Telangana movement as the state comes into being on June 2. The TRS chief also said a group of educationists would meet governor ESL Narasimhan in this regard and the TRS would welcome the governor’s inputs and advice.

“We are focusing on incorporation of new syllabus for the students at primary level,” KCR added.
