The results of 149 seats of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has now been declared. The Telangana Rashtriya Samiti has won 56 seats, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen has won 43 seats and the Bharatiya Janata Party has recorded wins in 48 seats. The initial results show that the AIMIM could emerge as a kingmaker as it looks unlikely for TRS to secure the magic number - 76.

Congress has won 2 seats so far and has been pushed pushed to the sidelines. The Telangana Pradesh Committee Chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy has resigned taking responsibility of the party’s dismal performance. The results show that BJP has become the main challenger to the ruling TRS in Telangana. Union minister G Kishan Reddy has said that Telangana has paved the path for BJP in the state as citizens are growing tired of the TRS rule, news agency ANI reported.

The polls are being seen as a three-way battle between the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The BJP, in fact, went all out in its campaign for the December 1 polls, with prominent leaders like Union home minister Amit Shah, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, part president JP Nadda and youth wing chief Tejasvi Surya, among others, campaigning in the IT hub.
