Hyderabad: AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi today said his party would support the ruling TRS in Telangana in the biennial elections to Rajya Sabha from the state.

"MIM party has decided to support TRS party candidates in Rajya Sabha elections," he said on a social networking site. Elections would be held on March 23 to fill the three vacancies. In the 119-member Legislative Assembly, the party-wise strength is: TRS-82, INC-19, MIM-7, BJP-5, TDP-3, Independent-1, CPI(M)-1 and CPI-1. The MIM's support would boost the chances of TRS to win the third seat also as the main opposition Congress is considering fielding its nominee in the poll.
