It was on February 24 when the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) released its first list of 109 candidates for the upcoming MCD polls. The list of Okhla’s ward number 100S and 102S was also announced.
From 100S, ticket to Mahmood Ahmed was given and there was jubilation in his camp.
However, just a few hours after words started spreading in the locality that the AAP has cancelled his ticket. His political adversaries argued that there was something wrong that led to the cancellation of his ticket.
OT.COM received several calls in this regard. But the fact of the matter is that Mahmood on Wednesday appeared to be very happy, girding up for the big moment.
It is confirmed that it is rumour.
For Okhla watchers such a development is not new as they said as elections date comes nearer many such things are expected to happen. And they suggest that people should not take such things seriously.
All told, it would be interesting to see how the poll battle in 100S turns up. Most probably, according to political experts, two-time councillor Shoeb Danish is to contest on Congress ticket.
In such a situation it would be interesting to see who other candidates are in the fray. Moreover, it would be interesting to see whether youth leader Mahmood will be able to breach Danish fort.
