SURESH GOLANI Bhayandar
Virtually setting the ball rolling for the upcoming civic elections in Mira Bhayandar, Samajwadi Party MLA, Abu Asim Azmi, on Saturday, launched a scathing attack on the local Congress leadership and asked
his partymen to set aside their individual ambitions and work together to topple the corrupt Congress- led ruling alliance governing the local civic body.
Azmi was speaking at the ” Jan Jagran Sabha” organized by the city SP unit at the Muslim dominated Naya Nagar area of Mira Road on Saturday.
” Who says the Congress is a secular party, there are many instances where they ( Congress) have joined hands with communal forces to grab power in zilla parishads and civic bodies.” alleged Azmi.
According to sources, Azmi is adamant to settle scores with Congress leader Muzaffar Hussain and is personally concentrating in the day- to- day affairs of the party activities and poll preparations for the forthcoming municipal elections.
It may be recalled that Abus son Farhan had lost the Bhiwandi assembly by polls to the Shiv Sena candidate Rupesh Mhatre, apparently due to the division of votes between the Congress candidate, Muzaffar Hussain and Mulayam Singh Yadav- led Samajwadi Party paved the way for Senas victory.
