They’ve been at it for more than a yr now. They’re doing whatever they want to do. Anyone raising issues of the common man or talking against the government policies is being targeted.

She was then with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).However, she lost the 2019 polls to BJP’s Pradeep Choudhary.Her husband Munawwar Hasan, a three-term MP and two-term MLA, was elected to the Lok Sabha in 2004 but died in an accident in 2008.In January 2020, Hasan’s son Nahid, who’s a two-term Kairana MLA, was arrested and sent to jail after a local court rejected his bail plea in reference to a cheating case. He was later granted bail.For the Hasans, trouble began on September 9, 2019, after Nahid’s public spat with the then Kairana SDM Amit Pal Sharma when the officer stopped his SUV and asked for its papers.Through the subsequent probe, it turned out that the vehicle was not registered at all and Nahid was then booked for allegedly misbehaving and driving an SUV with out valid papers.Later, district administration and police in Shamli, revived 11 old cases filed against the MLA and have begun a probe in all of them.
