This time, in Telangana polls, the AIMIM is contested in 9 seats, more than in 2018. But it’s been the seat in which it isn’t fighting the election that has gained huge interest. That is Goshamahal assembly constituency, although it is one of the 7 assembly seats underneath AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi’s Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency.
Staying far away from competition towards Raja Singh, the sitting BJP MLA considering 2014 who’s also the candidate in this election, has raised allegations that Owaisi encourages the presence of this Lodh Rajput chief and `gau rakshak’ because it enables both people to polarise the 2 groups and benefit politically.
BJP Raja Singh
Raja Singh, regarded to be a rabble-rouser, is also known as a `Hindu Sher’ in those elements. There is no BJP vs. AIMIM direct fight in Goshamahal, regardless of the vicious private assaults that Singh has always installed towards the Owaisi brothers, despite the 24 steps with cent Muslim populace in Goshamahal, a network whose reason Owaisi espouses.
Despite the comments by Raja Singh in opposition to Prophet Mohammed, which caused his suspension from the party for the remaining 12 months, Owaisi offers no explanation for the no-display in Goshamahal and rather criticizes the Congress for fielding a candidate best to cut into the votes of the BRS candidate.
AIMIM and BRS alleged that Congress
In 2018, the Congress candidate polled 26,000 votes, while Singh’s triumphing margin became 17,000. The Congress candidate this time is the leader of the Telangana Mahila Congress, Mogili Sunitha. The BRS and AIMIM alleged that Congress has deliberately fielded a vulnerable candidate to help the re-election of Raja Singh.
But realizing that the refusal to fight in Goshamahal has furnished ammunition to people who say Owaisi has reduced an address the BJP and the narrative is similarly eroding its preserve over the Muslim vote outside the vintage metropolis of Hyderabad, the AIMIM and BRS have worked on a method to make Raja Singh sweat it out this winter. The parties feel that in the event that they control to disappoint the Singh applecart in Goshamahal, it’s going to be positioned to rest the conspiracy theories of BJP-AIMIM-BRS being the `Amar Akbar Anthony’ of Telangana.
Battle for Goshamahal
The BRS has aggressively worked on the optics. Municipal Administration minister and the Chief Minister’s son, KT Rama Rao, held roadshows within the constituency, promising to transform crowded Goshamahal – which has a great Hindu migrant populace from north India and is thought simplest for its markets, kite stores, Ganesh idol makers and Dhoolpet that changed into as soon as the hub of illicit liquor – into a Gachibowli that’s located within the metropolis’s upscale IT vicinity. To lend a non-public contact, he frolicked at Famous Ice Cream in Moazzam Jahi marketplace, wooing the aspirational center-class voter.
What will fear him is that his victory margin changed from 46000 in 2014 came all the way down to 17000 in 2018. The tension showed when he warned his supporters at a public assembly, cautioning them against putting up a fight with political rivals. The BRS promises a marvel in Goshamahal this time.
