Reddy reportedly asked Director General of Police (DGP) Anjani Kumar on Sunday, to make security arrangements for the swearing-in ceremony.

He called and discussed with DGP, Additional DGP (Law and Order) and ADG CID about preparations for the swearing-in ceremony, which could be held tomorrow or on December 9, the Telangana police said today.

Reddy reportedly told them the Congress will meet with the Governor and discuss government formation.

"The TPCC President mentioned that from today evening Muhurtam (auspicious time) will start. So, if possible, they may consider swearing-in functions tomorrow (Dec 4) or they may take (oath) on December 9," it said.

Several chief ministers, former chief ministers and senior leaders from the national capital are expected to attend the ceremony, Reddy told the police. The event is likely to take place in Hyderabad's LB Stadium.

The Telangana Police chief directed that each winning candidate would get 2 Personal Security Officers (PSOs) each.

Revanth Reddy is the frontrunner for the post of the chief minister. However, the party hasn't made any official announcement yet. He will replace KCR, who has been the chief minister of the state since 2014.
