Grandson of the seventh Nizam of Hyderabad and son of Prince Hasham Jah Bahadur, Nawab Mir Najaf Ali Khan joined the Congress party on Sunday in the presence of AICC president Mallikarjun Kharge.

He is the first person from the Nizam family to have joined politics. Mr. Khan said after joining the party that four generations of the Nizam were associated with the Gandhi family and joining the Congress was only an extension of that.

Mr. Kharge said that the Nizam family contributed to the Nation from Jawaharlal Nehru to Rahul Gandhi. The Nizam family gave tonnes of gold to the late Lal Bahadur Shastri, former Prime Minister of India, during the war with China.
