Assembly elections in Telangana are scheduled for November 30 and all eyes are on the Jubilee Hills seat. The constituency will witness a four-way contest between the governing BRS and the Congress, BJP and AIMIM.

It’s also the first electoral contest for Mohammed Azharuddin, former Indian cricketer and present working president of the Congress in Telangana. 

In this conversation with Yunus Lasania, Azhar, whose cricketing career came to an end after match-fixing allegations, discusses his plans to fight this election, why the party is always bigger than the person, and whether Jubilee Hills is a “VIP constituency”.
