    Hyderabad Lok Sabha Election 2024: Complete Schedule
    According to the Election Commission’s schedule, Hyderabad will cast its vote alongside the rest of Telangana during the fourth phase of the General Elections on May 13, with vote counting scheduled for June 4.

In the Lok Sabha elections, Telangana has a total of 17 seats. In the 2019 election, the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS, formerly Telangana Rashtra Samithi or TRS) secured nine seats, while the BJP won four, and the Congress secured three. Asaduddin Owaisi, the chief of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), retained the party’s sole seat from the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency.

In 2019, Owaisi won with 58.95% of the votes, defeating BJP’s Bhagavanth Rao by a margin of two lakh votes. Five years earlier, in 2014, Owaisi secured 52.94% of the vote, also with a two-lakh vote margin.

While some political parties have already unveiled their candidate lists prior to the polls, others have announced candidates as the election progresses across different phases.
