First timer Shahezadi of BJP to take on Owaisi

There has been no development in the lives of common people in the old city, particularly in the Chandrayangutta constituency,” Shahezadi said at the state BJP office after her name was declared.

The BJP has fielded Syed Shahezadi a novice in politics to take on four-time legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi, the younger brother of All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi from Chandrayangutta in the Old City. 

The young Muslim woman was an active leader in the ABVP and belongs to Adilabad district in north Telangana. Telangana is going to polls on December 7th.

The young lady has an MA in political science from Osmania University and was active as a student leader from the student wing of the RSS. “There has been no development in the lives of common people in the old city, particularly in the Chandrayangutta constituency,” Shahezadi said at the state BJP office after her name was declared. Her action plan includes the implementation of Central schemes in the old city to kickstart development.

“While the children on Majlis leaders’ study in the best educational institutions the street children in the old city are only being radicalised by the leaders,” Shahezaadi says. She wants to give priority to the education of girl children in the communally volatile constituency and a stronghold of the Majlis.

However, she is not ready to agree that the BJP also encourages communal agenda. “Vested interests have projected BJP as a communal party, but my party sees no difference among people,” she said. She reminds that BJP has made APJ Abdul Kalam President of India and BJP's Muslim leaders like Sikandar Bhakt, Najma Heptulla and MJ Akbar held important positions.

Rebellion in party

Following the release of names of 28 candidates in the second list, a few days ago, protests broke out in several places. Aspirants Naresh and Bhaskar Reddy staged a protest and raised slogans accusing the BJP state leadership of selling tickets to businessmen. Particularly the nomination of Yoganand a businessman for the crucial Serilingampally constituency resulted in spontaneous protests at the party headquarters near Exhibition grounds here

In other places such as Bhongir, Shyamsundar Rao miffed over his name not being cleared in the first list, went missing. A youth wing leader from Malakpet tried to commit suicide for not being considered for a party ticket. The party had released names of 38 candidates in the first list.
