Speaking at the mega rally on the outskirts of Hyderabad, KCR said, "Like Tamil Nadu, Telangana should also unite to oppose other Delhi-based parties."

However, the Telangana Rashtra Samiti chief refrained from making any announcements on early elections or forming alliances with other political parties for the 2019 elections.

In the afternoon, the chief minister held a cabinet meeting at his camp office, but did not take any decision on the dissolution of the assembly. The cabinet, which approved some pending decisions, authorised KCR to take a decision on early polls.

"All my party leaders, including my cabinet colleagues and MLAs, have authorised me to take a decision on dissolution of the assembly, which everybody is waiting for anxiously. I will take an appropriate decision soon and come before you," KCR said.
