How can AIMIM play the kingmaker role?

Exit polls suggest that AIMIM is expected to win 4-9 seats ahead of the Telangana election results. In the event that BRS falls short of the magic number, which is 60, AIMIM may extend support, given their existing friendly alliance.

If both BRS and Congress fail to reach the magic number, AIMIM will emerge as the kingmaker.

However, exit polls are only indicative, and blind belief in them is not advisable.

The Telangana assembly election results, scheduled for release on December 3, will only determine which party forms the government in the state.
