Hyderabad: The ruling Telangana Rashtriya Samithi (TRS) Party in the state is likely to win all the six MLC seats which are under the MLA quota.

The Telangana State Legislative Assembly has a total of 119 seats of which the TRS has 104, MIM 7, Congress 6 and BJP has 2 seats. Based on the superior seats in the Legislative Assembly, it is being presumed that the TRS party will win all the 6 seats unopposed.
