Telangana pre-poll survey predicts number of seats AIMIM is expected to win
Telangana Assembly polls
Telangana Assembly polls are scheduled to be held on November 30, 2023. The counting of votes will take place on December 3, 2023.
In the previous Telangana Assembly polls, the TRS, now known as the BRS, formed the government by securing victory in 88 out of the 119 seats, marking a significant increase in its seat share by 25. In contrast, the INC’s seat share decreased from 21 to 19, while AIMIM managed to win seven seats. Despite the BJP’s efforts to form a government, they could only secure a single seat, with Raja Singh winning the Goshamahal Assembly constituency seat. The saffron party’s seat share dropped from five to one.
In the current assembly polls in Telangana, although AIMIM is fielding candidates from nine constituencies, the pre-poll survey predicted the party’s victory on only 5-7 seats. As it is just an opinion poll, it remains to be seen how many seats the party will win.
