With a few days left for Assembly elections in Telangana and Rajasthan, Congress president Rahul Gandhi is leaving no stone unturned to woo voters ahead of the December 7 polls. After addressing a series of rallies in both the states, Rahul Gandhi will yet again hold public meetings in Telangana’s Gadwal and Tandur on Monday. The Congress has joined hands with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister’s Telugu Desam Party (TDP) against Telangana's caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao's ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi. The Congress, the TDP, Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) and the CPI have formed an alliance against the TRS and the BJP.

GST has not been implemented properly, causing problems to small traders,’’ Naidu said at a meeting at Khammam as quoted by the Indian Express.
