AICC Telangana Incharge R C Khuntia Sunday alleged that caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao would join hands with the BJP in the Lok Sabha polls next year and has entered into a tie-up with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Assembly polls in Telangana were originally scheduled to be held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha elections next year.
However, the assembly was dissolved earlier last month as per a recommendation of the state cabinet, which necessitated elections ahead of the schedule.
Hefurther hit out at Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief for "not fulfilling" his promise of providing 12 per cent reservation in jobs and education to Muslims and enhancement of quota for Scheduled Tribes.
A separate Telangana State was created due to the efforts of then UPA government andUPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Khuntia added.
The Election Commission Saturday announced the dates for the Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram Assembly polls.
Polling in Rajasthan and Telangana will be held on December 7.
