Hyderabad is the Muslim dominant seat where the community constitutes about 70% of the total voters. It comprises of Malakpet, Karwan, Goshamahal, Charminar, Chandrayangutta, Yakutpura and Bahadurpura. Six out of seven Assembly segments were won by the MIM candidates while one seat Goshamahal was won by M Mukesh Goud of Congress.

The sitting MP, Asaduddin Owaisi, was studying law in London in 1994 when he was summoned by his father and Hyderabad MP Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi to contest from the Charminar seat.

The MIM was in trouble due to the split caused by the party MLA Amanullah Khan who later floated Majlis Bachao Tehreek. Asaduddin Owaisi was the lone MIM candidate who got elected to the assembly in 1994. But soon he took control of the party and got re-elected to the assembly in 1999, besides ensuring party’s victory on three other seats.

Due to ill-health and old age, Salahuddin Owaisi retired from electoral politics in 2004 and Asaduddin got elected from the Hyderabad seat. He retained the seat in 2009 elections and this time too he is in the fray and is the strongest contender.

As against 13,93,242 electors in 2009 elections, there are  16,61,128 voters in 2014 polls. The increase of 267,886 voters including 43,386 electors aged between 18-19 years is not likely to have an impact on the results. While there were 23 contestants in 2009, there are 15 candidates this time including four independents. The prominent candidates include Asaduddin Owaisi of All Indian Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, S Krishna Reddy of Indian National Congress and Dr  Bhagavanth Rao of Bharatiya Janata Party.

The other candidates include Rashid Shareef of Telangana Rashtra Samithi, S Khaja Moinuddin of All India Azad Congress Party, Jaya Vindhyala of Socialist Party (India), Binghi Rajashekar Pyramid Party of India, Boddu Sainath Reddy of YSRCP, N Mahender Singh of Nava Bharat National Party, Lubna Sarwath of Aam Admi Party, Syed Mustafa Mahmood          of Majlis Bachavo Tahreek and independent candidates Md Osman, Shaik Moin, Syed Abdul Gaffer and M.A. Habeeb.

Unlike 2009 elections, when Siasat Editor Zahid Ali Khan gave a tough contest to Asaduddin Owaisi, the Hyderabad Lok Sabha seat is not likely to witness any keen contest this time. While Asad Owaisi is confident of a comfortable victory with a huge margin, his main rival Bhagavanth Rao of BJP feels that he could win the seat on the plank of development.

In Hyderabad Lok Sabha seat, Goshamahal has the largest number of 266,641 voters followed by Yakutpura – 257231; Karwan – 255,442; Chandrayangutta – 241,882; Malakpet – 235,448; Bahadurpura – 227,911 and Charminar – 176,573.

Akbar Owaisi to expand MIM across India http://innlivenews.in/2013/08/18/akbar-owaisi-to-expand-mim-across-india/ http://innlivenews.in/2013/08/18/akbar-owaisi-to-expand-mim-across-india/#comments Sun, 18 Aug 2013 00:37:48 +0000 http://innlivenews.in/?p=23055

Hyderabad, August 17: Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi announced that all efforts would be made to expand the MIM across India.

Delivering the first speech in a public meeting after a gap of nearly eight months, Akbar Owaisi told thousands of people who gathered at Khilwat Grounds on Saturday night that the MIM would expand its base to Maharashtra, Karnataka, Bihar, Gujarat and other parts of the country. Stating that every community has a representative party in India, he said there is not a single national party that represents over 25 crore Muslims in the country. He said extensive tours would be made to different parts of the country to form a strong political platform of Muslims and backward communities.

Akbar Owaisi made it clear that the MIM was not against any religion. However, it was opposed to the Sangh Parivar and other communal outfits. Ridiculing those who used to refer the MIM as a small party, he said that the MIM is now being counted as a representative organisation of Indian Muslims across the globe. He expressed concern over the on-going turmoil in Egypt, Syria and other countries in the Middle-East and said that Muslims should understand the conspiracies being hatched to divide them.

The MIM leader cautioned the Muslims of Hyderabad against the conspiracies of divisive forces and said they should restrain from fighting amongst themselves on sectarian or other basis. He said all mosques should be kept clean from all differences and they should be named after Khulfa-e-Rashideen, Ahle-Bait Athaar, Sahaba-e-Ikraam and wherever possible, the mosques should be named as Babri Masjid to send out a message that if you demolish one mosque, then we will construct hundred others.

Akbar Owaisi recalled the services of late Salar-e-Millat Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi for the Muslim community. He said that Salar-e-Millat was a selfless politician whose only goal in life was to ensure socio-economic and political empowerment of Muslims. He said thousand of students have passed out from the institutions formed by Salar-e-Millat.

Speaking about the cases registered against him in Adilabad, Nizamabad and other places for allegedly making hate speeches, Akbar Owaisi said that he has total faith in judiciary and would come out clean of all charges leveled against him.

Moulana Mufti Khaleel Ahmed of Jamia Nizamia, Moulana Masood Hussain Mujtahedi, MLAs Syed Ahmed Pasha Quadri, Virasat Rasool Khan, Mohammad Maozam Khan, former Mayor Mir Zulfeqar Ali, former Deputy Mayor Jaffer Hussain Meraj and others also spoke.

Hyderabad, Aug 4: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president Asaduddin Owaisi may not contest from Hyderabad Lok Sabha seat in 2014 elections. Instead, he is likely to field his younger brother and Chandrayangutta MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi from the Hyderabad parliamentary segment.

According to sources, the MIM president is keen on capatalising the popularity Akbaruddin Owaisi has gained in the recent past. While Akbar Owaisi’s gained massive public support after the assassination bid, his popularity touched its peak when he was arrested for allegedly making hate speeches. He is now being considered the most popular MIM leader after his father Salar-e-Millat Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi.

Although Akbaruddin Owaisi has reduced his public appearances after his release from Adilabad Jail in the alleged hate speech case, ill-health and legal complications are said to be the reasons that forced him to keep a low profile for time being. However, sources say that Akbar Owaisi is preparing to contest the next Lok Sabha elections after being asked to do so by his elder brother.

Known for making strategic political moves at appropriate times, Asaduddin Owaisi is aiming to increase MIM’s strength in the next Assembly. Therefore, by fielding Akbar Owaisi from the Hyderabad seat, he plans to focus on State politics. Sources say that Asaduddin Owaisi himself may contest from Charminar seat as present MLA Syed Ahmed Pasha Quadri has reportedly desired to retire from electoral politics.

After the delimitation of seats in 2009, Hyderabad seat has become safe for the MIM. In 2009 elections, Asaduddin Owaisi won with a comfortable majority of over one lakh votes against his nearest rival Zahid Ali Khan of Telugu Desam Party. MIM’s arch rival Bharatiya Janata Party stood third by securing 93,917 votes against MIM’s 308,061 while Zahid Ali Khan secured 194,196 votes. The statistics clearly show that Akbar Owaisi could comfortably win from Hyderabad while his candidature would have an indirect impact on all the Assembly segments including those falling in Secunderabad Lok Sabha constituency.
