Hyderabad: Muslim residents at Amberpet have started a campaign to ‘Vote for Nota’ as elected representatives have not bothered to fix a parcel of land for a burial ground.

The existing burial ground which was sanctioned by the Nizam is already full and the management committee has put up a board in the graveyard, stating this.

 

Muslim youth are doing door-to-door campaigning and are giving a call to residents not to fall for fake promises until and unless there is a written statement regarding the development.  

More than five acres of the Amberpet Muslim graveyard has remained packed since the last 15 years and the promises of elected representatives have served no purpose.

Residents are managing by reusing the same land and those without this option are going back to their home towns for burial, according to sources. When we went to bury our aunt a couple of years ago, we were not given space for the burial and we had to use the space where we buried our grandmother.

 

This is one of the major problems that our community cannot compromise with, said, Mr M.D. Basheer, a resident of Amberpet.

Mr Shaikh Salauddin, another resident and a social activist, said, “Time and again, we are being cheated by the empty promises of representatives. This time we want a written statement from the contesting candidates to secure our vote. If not, our door to door campaign of Vote for Nota will be intensified, as this time, minority youth has shouldered the responsibility of the development of basic amenities.”
