The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) has pledged to address the backwardness of Bihar’s Seemanchal region, where it won five seats in the just-concluded Bihar assembly polls and registered its best electoral performance outside its stronghold of Hyderabad.
“Our only focus is to lift Seemanchal out of backwardness, poverty, illiteracy, and disease,” said Bihar’s AIMIM chief president, Akhtarul Iman, who won the Amour seat. He criticised the established parties for doing nothing to mitigate the miseries of the region’s people.
