Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) has fielded Member of Legislative Council Muzaffar Hussain against Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi’s son Farhaan Azmi for the January 20 by-election to Bhiwandi Assembly seat.

The seat was vacated by Abu Azmi on getting elected from two constituencies — Mankhurd and Bhiwandi east — in the October Assembly elections.

Farhaan will be official candidate of the Republican Left Democratic Front.

For Hussain, an outsider hailing from the neighbouring Mira Bhayander, the ticket comes as a reward for not rebelling against the Nationalist Congress Party nominee in his home constituency.

A novice in politics, Farhaan is mostly known as actress Ayesh Takia’s husband.
