Hyderabad, Nov 21 (Hydnow): BRS led by Chief Minister K.Chandrasekhar Rao and Congress party led by Revanth Reddy in Telangana are going all out to woo Muslim voters, who are considered a key factor in 40 out of the 119 assembly constituencies.
With less than 10 days to go for the polling, all eyes are on Muslims, who constitute nearly 13 per cent of the state’s 3.26 crore voters. The BRs, which is aiming for a hat-trick in power, is confident that Muslim voters will once again back it while a resurgent Congress is expecting a report of karnataka, where Muslims played a key role in bringing Congress to power. However, some political analysts believe that Muslim votes may get divided between BRS and Congress
They say the situation in karnataka can’t be compared with Telangana as the neighbouring state under BJP’s rule was pushing forward Hindutva agenda with ban on Hijab and controversies like Halal and Love Jihad. Moreover, there was no alternative for Muslims in Karnataka..
Ever since the formation of Telangana state in 2014, it is ruled by BRS, which has a secular image and the state under its rule has been free from any major communal riot or issues like mob lynching, Hijab or Halal
The BRs is pinning its hopes on its friendly party Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM), a dominant player in Hyderabad politics and which has considerable influence among the community in the rest of the state. Asaduddin Owaisi led party is contesting nine seats, including the seven it holds, while in the remaining constituencies it is backing its friendly party BRS. (Hydnow)
