Mysuru, January 8:- Janata Dal (Secular) leader Ayaz Ahmed Sharif has urged the JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda and party state president H D Kumaraswamy to allot ticket to JD(S) state organising secretary Mujahid Baig from Assembly Narasimharaja Constituency at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Monday.
“Muslim candidates were not given a chance in the party in N R Constituency in the past 24 years. Giving ticket to Mujahid Baig will help Muslims of Mysuru, Mandya, Chamarajanagar, Ramanagara, Kodagu, and Hassan districts. The constituency has 1.2 lakh Muslim voters and a Muslim candidate will emerge victorious in the constituency,” he added.
M T Mushtaq Ahmed, Mukthar Pasha, Mohammed Ibrahim, Arshad Ahmed and others were present.
