Pilibhit. of Uttar Pradesh Pilibhit City Assembly Seat But there is a fierce fight between brother-in-law and brother-in-law. former cabinet minister Haji Riyaz Ahmed After the death of his daughter and former district panchayat president Rukaiah Arif in the second wave of Corona, a ruckus started over Riyaz’s political legacy. Riyaz’s son Shane Ali and his son-in-law Mohammad Arif came face to face over the city assembly seat. Brother-in-law and brother-in-law made a claim from the Samajwadi Party from the city assembly. If sources are to be believed, this dispute deepened so much that during the visit of SP State President Naresh Uttam Patel, a lot of talk was heard between the supporters of both. It was somehow pacified by a former minister present there.
Learned politics by staying in in-laws’ house
During the life of Riyaz Ahmed, when the late (late) former minister made his daughter Ruqaiya Arif the president of the district panchayat, Arif’s prestige grew very rapidly. Arif was at that time looking after the work of the Zilla Panchayat by staying in his in-laws’ house. During this, Arif also contested the district panchayat elections in the year 2015, in which he stood third. During this Corona period, in the Panchayat elections held in 2021, Arif also contested for the Panchayat member, but he could not even save his bail. The reason for these constant defeats of the knowledgeable Arif is only due to pride in his behavior. On the other hand, if Arif is to be believed, the former minister and his father-in-law were the only political gurus.
The family considered the son as the rightful owner
Shane Ali, son of late former minister Riyaz Ahmed, was studying MBBS in Lucknow. After the death of the former minister, Shane Ali started his political career at the behest of the family. According to Taslim Shan Khan, a close aide of Haji Riyaz Ahmed and former District General Secretary of the party, the real successor of Riyaz Sahab is Shane Ali. During his lifetime, the former minister wanted to bring him into politics, but his studies were not completed at that time. Now the whole family and all the people who believe in Haji ji are with Shane Ali.
In the midst of this claim of brother-in-law, the Samajwadi Party has also been divided into two factions. Some people consider Shane Ali to be a strong contender, while some people of the organization are also being told with Arif. In the midst of all this, the final decision regarding the claim has to be taken by SP chief Akhilesh Yadav.
There is also a possibility of a big loss to the city assembly due to the mutual fight of the family, because if the Samajwadi Party gives ticket to one of the brother-in-law, then the other will strongly oppose it, for which the party will have to bear the brunt.
