Telangana: No Muslim Candidate Wins for Congress or BRS
Hyderabad, December 5 (Maxim News): In a disappointing turn of events, Muslim candidates from both the Congress and the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) failed to secure victory in the recent Telangana assembly elections.
This outcome raises concerns about the representation of the Muslim community in the state’s political landscape.
Despite fielding Muslim candidates in five constituencies, the Congress party failed to secure a single victory. The party’s Muslim candidates faced defeat in key areas such as Nampally, Jubilee Hills, and Nizamabad Urban.

Similarly, the BRS, which fielded three Muslim candidates: Shakeel Aamir, Inayat Ali Baqeri, and Salahuddin Lodhi also failed to achieve any success in the assembly elections.
In contrast, the All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) managed to secure seven seats in the assembly, demonstrating its strong support among the Muslim community in Telangana.
The lack of representation of Muslim candidates from other parties highlights the challenges faced by the community in gaining political foothold in the region.
This outcome underscores the need for greater efforts to ensure that Muslim voices are adequately represented in the political sphere.
It is to mention here that Telangana, the citadel of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) for the last 10 years, has been overrun by the Congress after a nine-and-half-year battle with the promise of self-respect and welfare schemes. It has also put brakes on BRS chief K. Chandrashekhar Rao’s dream of playing a key role in the national politics.
The party secured 64 seats on its own and added to its tally in the form of its ally Communist Party of India (CPI) and is all set to form the government for the first time after the formation of the Telangana State. The BRS ended up with 39 seats, most of these coming from Hyderabad district and its surrounding Rangareddy district.
