K Chandrashekhar Rao to take oath as Telangana CM today
Hyderabad: K Chandrashekhar Rao, who led the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) to a massive win in the Telangana Assembly elections, will take oath as the Chief Minister of India's youngest state for a second consecutive term on Thursday.
His oath-taking ceremony will be held at 1.30 p.m. at Raj Bhavan. Governor E S L Narasimhan will administer him the oath of office and secrecy.
The newly elected legislators of TRS on Wednesday elected KCR their leader at a meeting held at the Telangana Bhavan, the TRS headquarters.
The TRS chief told reporters after the meeting that since the Election Commission has to issue a Gazette notification, the constitution of a full-fledged cabinet may take few days.
He said he would take the oath along with a colleague on Thursday.
KCR also sent his resignation to the Governor to facilitate formation of the new government and his swearing-in.
The TRS chief said he would try to give representation to all sections in the cabinet.
A delegation of TRS leaders met the Governor and presented a resolution passed at the TRS Legislature Party meeting, unanimously electing KCR as its leader.
Earlier, Telangana Chief Electoral Officer Rajat Kumar and Election Commission's Principal Secretary S.K. Rudola met the Governor and submitted the list of newly elected legislators.
