Epicentre Plus: Kairana Superstar Tabassum Hasan

May 31, 2018 11:56 PM IST India India

Kahin Khushi - Kahin Gham (Happiness at one place, sadness is the other) was the mood of the day as pre-board results for political parties came out. The maximum marks were 14 — the number of seats that had gone for bypolls — the BJP, usually the class toppers, scored a dismal 3 out of 14 and failed the test. The opposition surprised itself scoring 11 out of 14. Student of the year trophy is going to a 47-year-old Muslim woman from western UP, who stunned the BJP and won the communally sensitive Kairana Lok Sabha seat. With that Tabbasum Hassan has become the only Muslim Member of Parliament from UP. Today, she is not just the face of opposition unity but also Kairana's superstar.
