Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh Governor ESL Narasimhan today invited TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao to form government in Telangana, which would come into existence as the 29th state of India on June 2.

The swearing-in ceremony would be held at Raj Bhavan here on June 2 at 8.15 AM, a Raj Bhavan press communique said.

TRS has secured majority in the recent assembly elections by bagging 63 out of the 119 seats in Telangana and Rao has been elected as leader of the TRS legislature party.

“Congratulating Sri K Chandrasekhar Rao, on his election as the Leader, the Hon’ble Governor has sent him an invitation to form the government. The Hon’ble President of India is being addressed separately for revocation of the Presidential proclamation,” the press communique said.

June two is the ‘Appointed Day’ when Telangana and (new) Andhra Pradesh would come into existence as separate states.

Narasimhan was yesterday given additional charge of the proposed state of Telangana.

A Rashtrapati Bhavan communique said yesterday the President has appointed Narasimhan to discharge the functions of the Governor of Telangana, in addition to his present duties as Andhra Pradesh Governor until a permanent arrangement is made.
