Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi campaigned for his party's candidate Faiyaaz Memon, who is contesting from ward 62.
A bicycle rally was carried out from Behrambaug to Gulshan Nagar, S V Road and it concluded at Vaishali Nagar. During this rally, party workers were on bicycles while Abu Azmi traveled in his jeep, urging voters to vote for the SP candidate.
Faiyyaz Memon, Changez Multani and Firoz Shah were aspiring Congress candidates. However, the Congress overlooked the other two and gave the ticket to Firoz Shah. This did not go down well with Memon who decided to leave the Congress and joined the SP. While Memon joined the SP, Multani decided to contest as an independent candidate. Ward 62 has a sizeable proportion of voters belonging to the Muslim community - it boasts 3200 Muslim voters out of of a total of 55,820 voters.
