Telangana Assembly Elections Voting LIVE Updates: Voting for the Assembly elections in Telangana concluded across 119 seats on Thursday, 30 November, with the Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) and the Congress in a neck-and-neck fight.

While the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is looking to make inroads in the state, Asaduddin Owaisi's All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) is also in the fray.

According to opinion polls so far, the Congress is expected to give a tough fight to K Chandrashekar Rao's decade-long stint as the chief minister.

KCR is contesting from two seats – Gajwel and Kamareddy.

  • As many as 2,290 contestants are in the fray for the upcoming elections, including KCR and his minister-son KT Rama Rao.

  • BJP Lok Sabha members Bandi Sanjay Kumar, D Arvind, and Soyam Bapu Rao have been fielded by the saffron party.

  • Key leaders from the Congress in the fray include Revanth Reddy contesting from Kodangal and Kamareddy, and former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin contesting from Jubilee Hills.

  • AIMIM's Akbaruddin Owaisi is contesting from Chandrayangutta.

  • In 2018, the BRS won 88 of the 119 seats while the Congress came in a distant second with just 19 seats. The BJP won only one seat.

  • Voters wait in a queue in Telangana
