AIMIM ‘cancels’ protest against Okhla MLA Khan; know the reason

AIMIM ‘cancels’ protest against Okhla MLA Khan; know the reason.

A day ago AIMIM Okhla had announced that it would take out a rally in the locality against AAP Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan. However, today the AIMIM said it has cancelled the protest rally.

“We want to inform you that the protest organised by AIMIM Okhla on Sunday against AAP Okhla MLA on bad condition of roads and lack of basic infrastructure has been called off as the permission got cancelled by police,” said Afzal Khan Afridi, President Okhla Ward.

Since former AAP leader Irfanullah Khan joined AIMIM a few days ago, the party has become hyper active, organising meetings in the locality to drum up support, said sources. The protest rally was to be held after AAP workers took out a rally in Batla House on Friday against the local councillor and the municipal corporation alleging that it has done little to address civic issues.

With local elections coming nearer, chances are high that such blame game would increase to win hearts and minds of the residents with political parties blaming each other for lack of development in the locality, said a resident on the condition of anonymity.

It is fight of perception as whichever party or leader succeeds in convincing the residents that only it can develop the locality and should get a chance will win, said a political watcher.
