The Election Commission Friday said it will send a team to Hyderabad next week to assess poll preparedness in Telangana, where the assembly has been dissolved on the ruling party's request for early elections.
Senior Deputy Election Commissioner Umesh Sinha will head the team, which will "assess the situation in the state regarding poll preparedness", the poll watchdog said in a statement.
The team will reach the state on September 11. It will submit a report to the commission after the completion of the visit, it said.
The state cabinet had Thursday recommended the dissolution of the state assembly. Its term was to otherwise end in June, 2019.
