Syed Aminul Hassan Jafri Sworn in as Pro Tem Chairman of TS Legislative Council

Three-term MLC from All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), Syed Aminul Hassan Jafri, appointed pro tem chairman of the state legislative council.

Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao finalised Jafri’s name after consulting with AIMIM president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi.

Journalist-turned- politician Jafri has been an MLC for the past 12 years. The Telangana Legislative Council has been without a full-time chairperson for the past seven months.

Jafri will be the first Muslim candidate to hold the post in Telangana. Before bifurcation, Syed Mukasheer Shah had served as the council chairman of two terms – 1979 and 1985. Jafri will also become the first AIMIM functionary to hold the position. The AIMIM currently has only two MLCs, including Jafri in the 40-member state legislative council.

It is to mention here that the full-fledged Chairperson Gutha Sukender Reddy retired last June, V Bhoopal Reddy, who was made Pro Tem Chairman immediately, also retired on January 4.

The Council, unlike Assembly, is a continuous body and hence it cannot remain without a head. In this case, since no election to the post of Chairman and Deputy Chairman was held due to political reasons, a Pro Tem Chairman had to be elected.

The TRS waited all these months to ensure that they won all the vacant seats before a new Chairman and Deputy Chairman were elected.
