Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu favours assembly polls in the state before March 2004.
In his first interaction with the media after Governor Surjit Singh Barnala dissolved the assembly following a cabinet recommendation, Naidu said it will not be proper for a caretaker government to be in office for too long.
He said his Telugu Desam Party will make a represention to the Election Commission. "It's examination time in March. No school building will be available for use as polling booth. It's better to have polls before that," the chief minister said.
