Owaisi-led party has fielded candidates in eight assembly segments in Hyderabad and is supporting TRS in other segments. However, the Praja Kutami alliance of Congress, Telugu Desam Party (TDP), CPI and Kodandaram-led Telangana Jana Samithi, appears confident of forming the government in the country's youngest state.
