With the Election Commission of India announcing November 30 as the poll date for 119-member Assembly, the BRS chief has prepared a tentative tour programme.

Aiming for a hat-trick as the chief minister, KCR will be addressing two to three public meetings every day.

Stealing the show over his rivals, KCR announced BRS candidates for 115 out of 119 seats on August 21. The party is set to announce candidates for the remaining seats in the next couple of days.

KCR will distribute B-Forms to the BRS candidates at the party headquarters, Telangana Bhavan in Hyderabad on October 15. He will also address the candidates, giving them instructions and suggestions and explaining rules and regulations to be followed in the elections. The BRS supremo will also release the party manifesto on the occasion.
