PM Modi rallies highlights: Cong, TRS two sides of the same coin, says PM

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a public meeting in poll-bound Telangana’s Nizamabad. Here are the highlights

By HT Correspondent | Nov 28, 2018 00:11 IST

Political parties are leaving no stone unturned in their bid to outdo each other in the assembly elections in the five states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram, fielding key leaders, poaching heavyweights, forging alliances, among others.

The BJP is going solo in the state assembly polls while the Congress is leading a ‘grand alliance’ of opposition parties, including the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Communist Party of India (CPI) and Telangana Jana Samiti (TJS). The TRS is also going solo in the polls.

Telangana will go to polls on December 7 along with Rajasthan. The state legislative assembly has 119 seats. At present, the TRS led by chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is in majority with 90 seats. The assembly was dissolved on September 6, more than eight months ahead of the expiry of its term by KCR. Counting of polls will take place on December 11.

Here are the highlights:
