Telangana: BJP gets in Shehzadi against AIMIM’s Akbaruddin Owaisi

Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], Nov 3 (ANI): In a bold move ahead of the Telangana Assembly elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has placed newcomer Shehzadi as its Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) candidate from the Chandrayangutta constituency in the state against All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi's brother Akbaruddin Owaisi. Shehzadi, who is only a month old into politics, seemed unafraid of the Akbaruddin as she claims that all the Muslims in the region are against him. "My strategy for the elections is educational growth and national unity. In Hyderabad, since Independence, there has been no development happened in the Muslim community. No proper education system is there. 80 percent people used to ride Rikshaw before Independence and they are doing the same today also. To bring the change, I have joined BJP," Shehzadi told ANI. "Everything can be changed only through proper education. I have done double post-graduation. One month back, I entered politics. Few people think that the BJP is against Muslims, but BJP has proved that they are not against Muslims. As I am a student leader, I don't have any money with me," she added. Shehzadi comes from a normal family. "I joined ABVP in 10th standard. We used to solve different types of problems of the students through a students' organisation. I have heard a lot that many people believe that it's difficult to beat Akbaruddin Owaisi. The Muslim society in Chandrayangutta is against the AIMIM party since there has been no development in the area," she said. Shehzadi further expressed hope of receiving support from the Muslims. "It's not like that Muslims will not support the BJP. If that was the case, then the BJP could not have formed the government in Uttar Pradesh. BJP won't treat Hindus and Muslims differently. Many people have tried for the ticket for Chandrayangutta constituency, but the BJP has given importance to Muslims and they have given me a chance to prove myself." (ANI)
