Ahead of the mayoral election in Malegaon, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) expelled Abdul Malik Yunus Isa and other MIM workers of the party for hobnobbing with the Shiv-Sena backed Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) candidate.

According to a statement released by Rizwan Ahmed, MIM Covenor in Malegaon, Abdul Malik and his father Yunus Isa were expelled from MIM by MIM Maharashtra State President Syed Moeen.

He said the decision was taken after Yunus Isa and Abdul Malik were found supporting Ibrahim Seth of the NCP who is contesting the mayor election to be held in Malegaon Wednesday.

"The MIM can no way have any kind of relationship with the communal parties. There is no place in MIM for the people who support the NCP or take side with the Shiv Sena", he added.

"The decision has been taken by the party high command in the best interest of the party", he said.

Abdul Malik, on the other hand, rejects the said statement and said the party leadership still had faith in him.

He however declined to comment on why his name figured in the whip issued by his father Yunus Isa directing all the corporators to vote for Ibrahim Seth, the NCP candidate who is backed by the Shiv Sena.

Meanwhile, repeated attempts to contact MIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi for a clarification yielded no result.

Abdul Malik, who won the Malegaon civic elections on the NCP ticket, along with his father Yunus Isa, himself a sitting NCP corporator, joined the MIM ahead of the 2014 Maharashtra elections. Malik later contested the Maharashtra assembly election as MIM candidate but lost. He polled over 21,000 votes.
