“He Will Assist Us In UP and Bengal”: Sakshi Maharaj On Asaduddin Owaisi
Sakshi Maharaj stated Asaduddin Owaisi “assisted us in Bihar and will help in UP and Bengal too”.
BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj took a dig at AIMIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul) chief Asaduddin Owaisi today, forecasting his involvement in UP and Bengal elections will assist the BJP win the states. Asked about the Hyderabad MP’s presence in Uttar Pradesh, Sakshi Maharaj, who represents Unnao in the Lok Sabha, said, “It is God’s grace. May God offer him strength. He helped us in Bihar and will assist in Uttar Pradesh and later on in West Bengal too”.
Mr Owaisi had objected to in 2015’s elections in Bihar, which was stated to have cut into the Muslim votes that go to the opposition, leading to the NDA’s success. His party won five seats in the Muslim-dominated Seemanchal region– a big figure offered that the NDA won simply 15 more seats than the Grand Alliance.
After the elections, the Congress and Lalu Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal had dubbed him the “B Group of the BJP”.
In December, Mr Owaisi had revealed his celebration’s objective to object to the next state elections in Uttar Pradesh as part of a front led by former BJP ally Om Prakash Rajbhar. “We are now part of Mr Rajbhar’s morcha,” he had actually said after satisfying the Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party (SBSP) chief.
Today, Mr Owaisi, accompanied by Mr Rajbhar, was on a day-long check out to eastern Uttar Pradesh, focusing primarily on Muslim-dominated on Azamgarh. Elections in the state are due next year.
Prior To that, he is tossing his hat in the ring in Bengal, which has raised issue in the state’s ruling Trinamool Congress.
Bengal has 27 percent Muslim population that is part of the support base of Trinamool, which is facing difficulty from the BJP in the state elections due in 4 months.
The AIMIM chief has actually stated he is yet to choose whether he would contest solo in the state or form an alliance with another political party.
Earlier this month, throughout his first visit to Bengal, Mr Owaisi met Abbas Siddiqui, an influential Muslim cleric to discuss possibility of an alliance and implicated the Trinamool Congress of failing to stop the BJP’s surge in the state.
The “B Group of the BJP” tag has actually followed Mr Owaisi to Bengal. “The AIMIM is nothing however a proxy of the BJP. He is trying to create ties with Abbas Siddiqui, however that won’t yield any result. Muslims in Bengal stand strongly with Mamata Banerjee,” senior Trinamool leader and party MP Sougata Roy has said.
