Telangana strategy switch

Telangana Rashtra Samithi chief K. Chandrashekar Rao has decided against an early announcement of the 16 candidates for the Lok Sabha poll from the state, unlike the 105 contestants he named in one go for the 120-seat assembly poll soon after dissolving the House in September.

The delay, say sources, could also be because TRS plans to field new aspirants in at least six constituencies.

KCR has asked partymen to leave the choice of contestants to him and focus on increasing the voting percentage in the villages. Indivi­dual candidates, he feels, matter less in a Lok Sabha poll.
