Opinions are split among the respondents to the question whether the MIM will switch its support to the Congress, in case of hung verdict. The MIM may take any decision in response to political exigency. But some of the respondents assert that the MIM will not extend its support to the Congress under any circumstances because it has already pledged its support to the TRS. A section of respondents feel that the question of hung verdict does not arise at all. The people, they have said, will give a decisive verdict
In all probability, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) will not support the Congress-led Praja Kutami (People’s Front). In case of hung Assembly, the MIM is certain to support the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS). MIM leadership has already pledged its support to K Chandrashekar Rao. - G Gopi, Hanamkonda
The MIM is likely to support the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in case of hung Assembly. As of now, there is no love lost between the MIM and the Congress. However, going by the popular saying - politics makes strange bedfellows – anything may happen. - G Sai Kamal, student, Warangal
I think, in case of hung verdict, definitely MIM will not support Congress. MIM and TRS are friendly parties. Since 2014 elections, MIM and TRS have remained friends. So, the MIM will back the TRS only, in case of hung verdict. - Kumboji Naveen, self-employed, Karimnagar
MIM party will support Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to form the government in Telangana State because of welfare schemes and development works implemented by TRS government. Muslim Minorities are very happy with the TRS for all-around development. - R Naresh, businessman, Adilabad.
In case of hung verdict, MIM will definitely support Telangana Rashtra Samiti to form the government. Because TRS is the only party which ensured for the welfare of Muslims minorities, the MIM will certainly support the TRS. - Kadakanti Nitin, Adilabad
The MIM will support the party in power. So, I feel that the MIM may change its stance, in case of hung verdict. It may support the Congress if the TRS fails to get the required numbers to form the government. - M Shankar, Mahbubnagar
To the best of my knowledge, MIM will voluntarily support the Congress-led People’s Front if it emerges single largest block. In politics, alliances are forged for the sake of interests of the parties concerned. - Srinivas Reddy, manager in a private company, Nalgonda
In case of hung verdict, the MIM will not support the Congress party. MIM supremo has already pledged his support to the TRS. It has an understanding with TRS. - P V V Raja Rao, Kothagudem
I feel that if the TRS party fails to get the required numbers to form the government and if Congress has the majority, then the MIM may not hesitate to support the Congress. Despite the fact that it had supported TRS during the elections, the MIM party can take any decision to protect its interests. - K Moses, Jadcherla
MIM had an alliance with the Congress party in the past. The alliance had benefited the MIM. If the People’s Front is voted to power, MIM will extent its support to the Congress for its political existence. - Giri, self-employed, Nalgonda
I do not think that the question of hung verdict will arise at all. So, the question of MIM backing the Congress, in case of hung verdict, does not arise. The voters, I think, have already given a decisive verdict. Either TRS or the People’s Front will get majority to form the government. - T Vinod, businessman, Domalguda
I don’t think the MIM will support the Congress, in case of hung verdict. The MIM has become estranged from the Congress. On the other hand, the MIM and TRS are friendly parties. In case of hung verdict, the MIM may even join the coalition government if it is headed by the TRS. - K Raminaidu, private employee, Kachiguda
I do not think that the MIM will give support to the Congress in case of hung verdict. So, the MIM will extend its support to the TRS. - K Rakesh, Kothagudem
