Imran Hussain: AAP's young face

Imran Hussain: AAP's young face

New Delhi, Feb (UNI) Aam Aadmi Party MLA from Ballimaran Assembly constituency Imran Hussain, sworn in on Sunday as a minister in the Arvind Kejriwal-led cabinet, had been socially and politically active right from the days when he was a student.

The AAP legislator retained his Ballimaran seat by defeating Lata of Bharatiya Janata Party by 36172 votes in the recently conducted Delhi Assembly polls.

Hussain, active in spreading awareness among the oppressed and deprived sections of the society and to provide social justice to the needy people in every possible way, was born on 21 May 1981 in New Delhi.

His early education took place at Crescent School in Daryaganj. He earned a bachelor's degree in business studies from Jamia Millia Islamia after which he took over the family business of clothes.

He was active in propagating social and political awareness among the oppressed and deprived people of Old Delhi from the beginning.

As a youth leader, he made every effort to provide social justice to the needy people.

Mr Hussain's political career began in April 2012 when he won the National Lok Dal Councilor's election from Ballimaran. He won the assembly elections on the Aam Aadmi Party ticket in 2015, after which he became the Food and Civil Supplies Minister of Delhi.

During his tenure, Hussain took initiatives to curb Delhi's environmental problems. He directed land owning agencies to crack down on burning of garbage and leaves in the open. He also asked them to increase vigil at all sites falling under their jurisdiction and prosecute those violating the orders issued by NGT.

To de-congest the traffic on roads, Mr Hussain banned the movement of trucks during peak hours. In addition to that, he took the decision of shutting down the Badarpur and Rajghat thermal plants and made it mandatory for vehicles to have Euro VI standards for vehicular emission from 2017.
