As many as seven corporators of Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) filed nominations in the standing committee election of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC). The poll will be held on June 6.

The MIM corporators who filed their papers are: A Samed Ahmed Abbad (Uppuguda), Syed Minazuddin (Akbarbagh), Mohd Mukram Ali (Moghalpura), Meraj Mohammed (Fathe Darwaza), Habeed Zain (Shivrampally), Aruna (Karwan) and Mohsina Parveen (Vijayanagar Colony).

The Mayor is automatically the chairperson of the standing committee and 15 members would be elected from among the 150 corporators.

Meanwhile, the Congress party is yet to name its candidates for the standing committee poll. Sources say PCC president Botcha Satyanarayana might find it tough to finalise suitable candidates as there is serious dissatisfaction among Congress corporators and already over a dozen of them have shifted loyalty to YSRC.

The term of the present standing committee will end in the first week of June. At present, Congress party has eight members, while MIM has seven. The committee’s tenure is one year.

The Committee plays a key role in taking important decisions in respect of sanction and release of funds for various developmental works up to `50 lakh.
