Elections in Telangana were necessitated after chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao dissolved the assembly in September.

Earlier in the day, the Congress party alleged that the EC had delayed its schedules press conference to announce poll dates for four states on account of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech at a public rally in Rajasthan.

 Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said, "The EC was supposed to hold a press conference at 12.30 pm to announce polls in four states. But, it was postponed to 3 pm." The apparent reason could be to facilitate "Modi to deliver his speech at a rally at 1 pm in Rajasthan."
