With the election in Telangana, where TRS is facing against a combined opposition alliance, slated to go down to the wire, the role of the MIM has become crucial. MIM is in a friendly alliance with TRS and is contesting 8 seats. It has strongholds in Greater Hyderabad region and won 7 of 119 seats in the 2014 Assembly elections with 4% of vote-share. Asaduddin says the MIM has a friendly pact with TRS. He also spoke about the importance of the minority vote in Telangana and charges of splitting the opposition vote.
