Ulema Council to contest Maharashtra Assembly elections

Ulema Council of Uttar Pradesh, formed after the infamous Batla House encounter, will now contest forthcoming assembly elections in Maharashtra as Rashtriya Ulema Council.

The party president Amir Rashadi in a press conference that extending its scope the party will field candidates in all 288 Maharashtra assembly seats.
