HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is confident the TRS will win five MLC seats in the elections under MLAs’ quota slated for June 1. KCR, who chaired the State Cabinet meeting here Tuesday, reportedly told his colleagues the TRS, despite having the numbers to pocket only four of the six seats up for grabs, will defeat the TDP to bag one more.

In all, seven contestants are in the fray and the TRS has fielded candidates for five seats. Sources said KCR told his colleagues a meeting of the TRS legislature party will be convened on May 29 to chalk out the poll strategy.

The Cabinet also discussed and approved the solar power policy which seeks to promote roof-top solar panels. It also gave its nod for the distribution of pattas to the poor, who applied for regularisation of houses built illegally on government lands, each within 125 sq yards. Around 3.66 lakh poor applied for regularisation under GO 58. The distribution of pattas will begin on June 2 for one lakh.

The Cabinet also discussed the power supply situation in the State and ratified agreements inked with the BHEL for new power plants, sources said. Similarly, it gave its nod for distribution of three-acre plots to dalits in the second phase. Around 3,950 acres will be distributed from June 2.

Besides, it also gave the green signal to KCR’s proposal to build 2-bedroom flats for the poor in Hyderabad and other places by inviting open bids. KCR reportedly directed his ministers to tour their districts from June 2 to 7.
