Though other candidates also contested for the seat, many consider that the actual contest is between the AIMIM and BJP candidates.

In 2019, Asaduddin Owaisi won the seat by securing 58.94 percent of the total votes polled in the constituency. With a voter turnout of 44.84 percent, Owaisi secured 26.43 percent of the total electors in the Hyderabad parliamentary constituency.

Even though six out of the seven seats in the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency are represented by AIMIM, there is a tight race for the seat between Asaduddin Owaisi and Madhavi Latha.

Since 1989, AIMIM has won the LS polls in the Hyderabad constituency nine consecutive times.

Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi, as an independent candidate, represented the constituency between 1984-1989. From 1989 to 2004, the Lok Sabha constituency was represented by Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi as an AIMIM MP.
