YAKUTPURA: Fight Intensified Between BJP & MIM
Mumtaz Ahmed Khan, Yakutpura's 5-time MLA from MIM may not be re-elected as he has been facing severe opposition from the people. Yakutpura is a traditional hardcore Muslim hold area.
Yakutpura constituency has a total of 340,000 voters. MIM is fielding Syed Ahmed Pasha Quadri who has been a two time MLA from Charminar. MIM changed its candidate to negate the anti incumbency sentiment.
TRS fielded Shyama Sunder Reddy while BJP fielded Roop Raj as their candidates from Yakutpura. Roop Raj stood second in the 2014 elections.
Traditionally Yakutpura is a stronghold of MIM. MIM lost only once in the early 1990s. Expect that, Yakutpura is supporting MIM for long 9 years.
Rajendra Nagaraj is the Congress candidate, while MBT is fielding Majeed Ullah Khan. But they wield very minimum influence and the main fight is in between MIM's Syed Ahmed Basha Qadri and BJP's Roop Raj. So, the fight is going to be the intensified between both the parties.
