Hyderabad: In the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, Hyderabad is likely to witness a triangular contest. The election may see the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) fielding a Muslim woman candidate, and the INDIA bloc giving a ticket to a Muslim candidate against the sitting Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi.
After looking at the results of the recent Telangana Assembly elections, the BJP is aiming to make an impact in the Lok Sabha polls, especially in Hyderabad. The state BJP president, Kishan Reddy, is seen determined to give a tough fight for the Hyderabad seat.
