Telangana Congress working president Mohammad Azharuddin likely to contest against the AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi for the Hyderabad Lok Sabha seat.
The ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi has decided not to contest for the seat from the Telangana capital city considering that AIMIM is an allied party.
56-year-old Azharuddin, who is a former cricketer, first won in the Lok Sabha elections from Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad in 2009. But then lost in 2014 from Rajasthan’s Tonk-Sawai Madhopur.
Then in November last year, Azar was appointed as the party’s working president and campaigned for his party’s candidates in the recent Assembly Elections in Telangana.
