KCR to take oath as Telangana CM tomorrow

K Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR), the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief, will take his oath as the state’s Chief Minister for a second consecutive term tomorrow at a ceremony which be held at 1.30 pm at the Raj Bhavan in Hyderabad.

 The sources said, “Governor ESL Narasimhan will administer him the oath of office and secrecy.  Some TRS legislators are also likely to take oath as Ministers along with KCR.”

The TRS bagged 88 seats in the 119-member Assembly in Telangana in the elections held on 7th December. KCR’s TRS demolished the opposition’s challenge and won the Assembly Elections by a landslide.

On Tuesday, KCR issued orders to all 88 elected MLAs to wrap up the work in their respective constituencies and be present in Hyderabad.

Out of 119 seats, the TRS won 88, Praja Kutami (a four-party opposition alliance comprising Congress, TDP, CPI and Telangana Jana Samiti) could grab just 21 seats. TRS chief KCR himself won by a margin of more than 51,000 votes from Gajwel.

KT Rama Rao, the son of KCR and nephew T Harish Rao, both ministers in his caretaker government, also registered victories with huge margins.

KCR has also expressed his intention to take on national politics, and said “We have the responsibility to make our presence felt in the national politics.”
