Aurangabad: The Hyderabad-based All India Majli-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) led by the Owaisi brothers — Asaduddin Owaisi and Akbaruddin Owaisi — has sprung a surprise by winning 25 of the total 113 wards in the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC).

The Shiv Sena-BJP alliance got 52 seats, Others/Independents 24 and NCP 3. The MIM became the second largest party in Aurangabad, the headquarters of the Marathwada region. Shiv Sena’s five-term MP Chandrakant Khaire leads the party in Aurangabad.
For MIM it is a major victory, after it won 11 of the 81 seats in Nanded



municipal polls on its debut in 2012. In the 2014 Maharashtra Legisaltive Assembly elections, the MIM won two seats – Imtiyaz Jaleel from Aurangabad Central and Waris Pathan from Byculla.

“It is wrong to say that we are fanning communal issues. We have given tickets to all sections of the society, including Dalits and they have won the elections….let me make it clear once again that the MIM stands for secularism and uniform development,” Pathan said. “The Sena-BJP would have to work now as we would be sitting in the opposition,” Jaleel said.
