With Syeda Falak, Will More Congress Persons Join MIM?
Hyderabad: With Syeda Falak, an international Karate champion whose family is traditionally known for its attachment with Congress, joining AIMIM ahead of GHMC polls, besides at least two former Corporators, it is believed that there are more shocks in store for the Congress party.
The development comes after already two Congress leaders from Old city shifted loyalties to the MIM party. Speculation is rife that more from the grand old national party would jump the bandwagon in the coming days.
Earlier, eyebrows were raised and heated social media debates were on after former Corporator Mohammed Ghouse joined AIMIM. To further embarrass the grand old party, another ex-Corporator Khaja Bilal Ahmed also joined the party within days. Both were considered to be vociferous critics of the AIMIM during the period when they served the Congress. Their rejoining AIMIM also brought to the fore questions if their presence in the Congress was to weaken it or if they were moles.
Syed Falak also known as the Golden Girl of Hyderabad, accompanied by her father Syed Shah Majaz Ul Haq, on Sunday met the AIMIM leaders including, party floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi, Yakutpura MLA and party general secretary Ahmed Pasha Quadri.
Speaking to media, she said that she would be campaigning for the party in the areas where the party candidates are contesting. “I shall be supporting the party in the GHMC elections and shall also campaign,” she said.
Meanwhile, Owaisi brothers went into overdrive during the campaign. On Sunday, Akbaruddin along with candidates Fahad Bin Samad Bin Abdat (Uppuguda), Abdul Wahab (Chandrayangutta), Azam Shareef (Lalita Bagh), Mirza Saleem Baig (Riyasat Nagar), Reshma Fatima (Kanchanbagh), Abdul Rahman Shah (Jangammet), Barkas (Shabana Begum) conducted door-to-door campaign.
