- Will the North see the light of victory?
Bhopal (EMS). Bhopal’s North Assembly, which is known as the impregnable fort of Congress, has become the most talked about and hot seat of the state these days. The magic of current Congress MLA Arif Akil, who has been holding this seat for three decades, and the myth of Congress’s victory seems to be breaking in this assembly election. This time, Congress has given ticket to his son Atif Akil in place of sitting MLA Arif Akil. Along with this, due to family feud of Akil family, two Congress rebels have also come into the fray as independent candidates from here. Atif Akil’s uncle Aamir Akil is contesting as an independent candidate from here. Along with this, Nasir Islam, the independent candidate from here, is increasing the problems of Congress. Along with this, AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) candidate Mohammad Saud is also proving to be a vote thorn for Congress. BJP has fielded former mayor Alok Sharma, close to CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan, on this seat.
Let us tell you that Bhopal North Assembly seat is Muslim dominated. Due to this political mathematics, Arif Akil had remained an invincible warrior on this seat for the last three decades. But this time due to Arif Akil’s illness, Congress has fielded his son Atif Akil. Along with this, apart from Aamir Aqeel (Atif’s uncle) and Nasir Islam, who have rebelled against Congress, Mohammad Saud from AAP is also contesting the elections. Nasir Islam, who has rebelled against Congress, says that he does not understand why people are being forced to support only one family. This is not going to last long in a democracy. Certainly Nasir’s attitude will harm Congress in the elections. Political scientists say that Aamir, Nasir and Saud have their own influence among the Muslims of the North Assembly constituency. Certainly, these three Muslim leaders will prove to be a source of votes for Congress in the elections. If Aamir, Nasir and Saud take even two or five thousand votes each, then it will make it very difficult for Congress candidate Atif Akil to win in Bhopal North, while it will be easy for BJP candidate Alok Sharma to win. Will go.
