New Hyderabad Mayor – An accused in criminal cases- Sad Day for Hyderabad

The Majlis party had a historic opportunity to have their mayor after 20 years and this is what they came up with, to shame the city of Hyderabad.

The new mayor of Hyderabad, Mohd.Majid Hussain is being touted as the youngest Mayor in the country. At the same time, it is a pity that out of 43 corporators the MIM could not come out with the name of even ONE person with a clean record.  The current mayor is an accused in 7 criminal cases including attempt to murder. Does it reflect the state of affairs in the MIM Or is it a warning to what the city must brace up to ?

A sad day indeed for the historic city of Bhagynagar ( Hyderabad). A historic opportunity wasted by the MIM.
