The Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) has entrusted the ticket to the incumbent MLA, Bigala Ganesh Gupta, who seeks re-election for the third time.

The Bhartiya Janata Party has nominated Dhanpal Suryanaryana Gupta as their contender.

In the previous Assembly elections, AIMIM also chose not to field a candidate in Nizamabad (Urban), urging its members to support Ganesh, then a TRS candidate.

Ganesh emerged victorious, securing 71,896 votes, with Congress’ Tahir Bin Hamdan garnering 46,055 votes.Laxmi Narayana Yendala of the Bharatiya Janata Party secured 24,192 votes.

This constituency boasts a total of 1,98,093 registered voters, comprising 98,224 males and 99,829 females.The influence of the minority communities, with 1.2 lakh voters, is poised to be a pivotal factor.

Leaders of AIMIM’s Nizamabad unit recently met party president Asaduddin Owaisi at the party headquarters, Darussalam, urging the party to reconsider contesting from Nizamabad (Urban).

After careful deliberation, the party opted to refrain from fielding a candidate in this constituency.

Members of the minority communities in Nizamabad (Urban) constituency express a preference for a Muslim candidate, citing past grievances with the BRS MLA.The spotlight now turns towards the Congress, which is inclined towards nominating a Muslim candidate.

The Congress is contemplating fielding either former Minister Mohd Ali Shabbir or Taher Bin Hamdan, a prominent businessman who contested unsuccessfully in the last elections.

Additionally, former mayor of Nizamabad city Sanjay, Nizamabad city Congress president Kesha Venu, and former TPCC secretary Narala Ratnakar are also vying for a party ticket from the constituency.However, shifting political dynamics seem to favor Shabbir Ali’s candidacy for the Nizamabad Urban constituency, according to sources.
