Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President and Hyderabad MP, Asaduddin Owaisi, announced on Friday that the party will contest on nine seats in the upcoming Telangana Assembly polls. Two days after this announcement, a pre-poll survey for the Telangana elections predicted the number of seats the party is expected to win.
After declaring that the party will contest Jubilee Hills and Rajendranagar, in addition to the existing seven constituencies, a pre-poll survey by Lok Poll predicted that AIMIM is likely to win only 5-7 seats.
Telangana pre-poll survey for Nampally seat
Regarding the Telangana pre-poll survey for the Nampally seat, Lok Poll previously claimed that AIMIM would lose the Nampally seat to Congress candidate Feroz Khan.
This prediction was made before the AIMIM candidate from the constituency was declared.
Now, the party has fielded Mohammed Majid Hussain in the constituency, which is currently held by Jaffer Hussain.
