Telangana Lok Sabha constituencies: All You Need To Know 

The Asaduddin Owaisi-led All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) has maintained its stronghold on the seat for over three decades. The party first won the seat in 1989 and since then it has continued to win here despite all efforts by Bharatiya Janata Party, Telugu Desam Party and others to dislodge it.

Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi had first won the seat as an independent candidate in 1984. In the subsequent election though, he contested on AIMIM ticket and won it.

He continued his winning run in 1989, 1991, 1996, 1998 and 1999 too. In 2004, his son Asaduddin Owaisi contested on the seat and proved the party's stronghold on the seat.
 
In the 2014 election, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi retained the seat by winning 5,13,868 votes, 2,02,454 more than his nearest rival Bharatiya Janata Party's Bhagavanth Rao who bagged 3,11,414 votes. 

In 2009 too, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen's (AIMIM) Asaduddin Owaisi was ahead of his closest competitor by 113865 votes. While Asaduddin Owaisi had bagged 3,08,061 votes, Telugu Desam Party's Zahid Ali Khan came second with 1,94,196 votes.

In the 2019 election, the AIMIM has once again fielded Asaduddin Owaisi from the prestigious seat while Bharatiya Janata Party has named Bhagavanth Rao as its candidate from this constituency. Congress candidate Mohammed Feroz Khan and Telangana Rashtra Samithi's Pusthe Srikanth are also in the fray.
