Hyderabad: All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi along with his brother and Assembly poll candidate from Chandrayangutta, Akbaruddin Owaisi, participated in a door-to-door campaign in Hyderabad on Friday.
Telangana will go to polls in a single phase on November 30.
Addressing media persons, Akbaruddin Owaisi said he was confident of winning the Chandrayangutta seat by a huge majority.
He claimed that the AIMIM has been involved in a raft of development activities and projects in the Chandrayangutta constituency.
The seat has been a stronghold of the AIMIM, with the party winning from this segment in the last two Assembly elections — in 2014 and 2018.
Earlier, the AIMIM chief announced Muhammad Mubeen as the party’s candidate from Bahadurpura constituency, replacing incumbent candidate Maozam Khan.
