AIMIM’s Gujarat State president Sabir Kabliwala has been fielded from the Jamalpur constituency. The other two candidates are Kaushika Parmar from Danilimda constituency and Wasim Qureshi from the Surat (East) constituency.

While party president and Hyderabad parliamentarian Asaduddin Owaisi has already addressed public meetings in that State, a party source said that more such public meetings will likely be planned after Dasara. In his public meetings, Mr Owaisi sought to know from Home Minister Amit Shah, how many developmental works he had sanctioned from his funds for Juhapura. He also criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the rupee’s fall as against the US dollar.
