After Jamaat supported AAP’s Wajid in MCD poll, its ‘affiliate’ body calls winner Cong’s Ariba for ice-breaking session
After supporting AAP’s Wajid Khan, who lost the in the MCD poll 2022 from Abul Fazal Enclave ward, Jamaat-e-Islami (Hind) affiliated body invited newly elected Councilor Ariba Khan for ice-breaking session in the conference hall of MMI Publishers on Wednesday.
