Hyderabad based All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) is going to enter the student politics of Uttar Pradesh by participating in Allahabad University Students’ Union elections this time, reports The Times of India.

The party has already declared its intent to contest the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly elections in 2022.

To bolster the party’s winnability, AIMIM state president Shaukat Ali has appointed Mohammad Amir, an MA first year student of Allahabad University (AU), as the head of the party's students’ wing.

“We will contest students’ union polls and will field our candidates on all posts in AU and constituent colleges. We are approaching students of all castes and communities for support and are assuring them all assistance in studies and difficulties,” Amir said.

“This is the first students’ wing of AIMIM in the state which will actively participate in students' union politics and will contest elections. We have full support of the party high command in Hyderabad,” said Zeeshan Rehmani, an office-bearer of the student’s wing.
