April 5, 2014
Hyderabad

The All India Congress Committee (AICC) has announced candidates for the coming Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in Telangana. TPCC chief Ponnala Lakshmaiah spent the entire day in Delhi today finalizing the candidates list with the Congress election screening committee. Candidates for 16 Lok Sabha and 110 Assembly constituencies in Telangana are decided.

Almost all the sitting members in Assembly and Lok Sabha have been retained for the coming elections.

Withholds announcing Assembly nominees

However in a surprising development, Congress has withheld announcing the names of its Assembly nominees. AICC spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that AICC has finalized nominees for 16 Lok Sabha and 110 Assembly nominees. He read out the nominees for Lok Sabha and four Assembly constituencies but withheld the rest citing technical reasons.

The following are the candidates announced.
