Lucknow: After failing to make its presence felt in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections earlier this year, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) is now preparing to contest municipal polls across the state.

“We were called for a meeting at Asaduddin Owaisi’s residence in Hyderabad. Whatever the instructions given to us will be followed and will work on it. Soon we will announce the candidate for Chairman, Panchayat Raj and other posts in Uttar Pradesh,” news agency IANS quoted AIMIM’s state president Shaukat Ali Khan as saying.

Pointing out the incompetence of some party leaders during the state legislative elections in 2022, he said” “We lost in the Assembly election. There was a time when the BJP would forfeit deposits but see where the party is today. So, it will take some time, we had a few weaknesses and few people at the party had not worked sincerely. This time we will place candidates in all the constituencies.”
