The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) is now comfortably leading in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections. Until 4 p.m., it was reported that the TRS had won in 16 wards, the Congress in 2, and the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) secured victory in 25.

While it is too early to say if the TRS will repeat close to its 2016 performance of 99 seats, analysts are expecting the ruling party to win anything between 65-75 seats. An AIMIM legislator, who did not want to be quoted, said that his party will win 45 seats. 

However, a clear picture will come only by evening, once counting is fully completed. 

In Hyderabad, the AIMIM has its bastions in the Old City areas which are dominated by Muslims, which fall under the 7 assembly segments that the party, led by Hyderabad Lok Sabha member of Parliament Asaduddin Owaisi, has been winning from over a decade.
