Hyderabad: Exuding confidence over AIMIM’s prospects in Uttar Pradesh elections, party president Asaduddin Owaisi stated BJP will not only lose UP elections but also in Huzurabad by-poll to be held on Saturday.
“We are going to contest 100 seats in Uttar Pradesh elections in 2022. Our objective is to ensure that current Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath does not come to power,” AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi said.
Speaking to Telangana Today over the current political scenario, the AIMIM chief said BJP’s divisive politics were being closely monitored by people across the country. “In the BJP-ruled States, there are atrocities on Muslims. In Tripura, 15 mosques have been damaged and no action has been taken on the offenders,” said Asaduddin Owaisi adding that in the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana scheme not even 10 houses have been allocated physically to Muslims.
The Hyderabad MP also said a deliberate attempt was being made by the BJP party to disturb pluralism and the secular fabric of Telangana. “Huzurabad voters are definitely aware of the BJPs divisive politics and would teach fitting lesson to the party,” said Owaisi.
The AIMIM Chief said the Central Government was discriminative towards Telangana, especially in terms of extending financial support. There was a deluge in Hyderabad during October last year and no support was extended by the Central Government. On the contrary, when there was any calamity in BJP-ruled States, financial assistance was extended immediately, he pointed out.
“I have been demanding the Central Government to share details of the assistance extended to Telangana, especially to GHMC but there is no response so far,” said Owaisi. The Hyderabad MP also found fault with BJP leaders comments and their narrative during campaigns in Huzurabad constituency. “BJP leaders are abusing at will and the threatening attitude will have an adverse impact on the voters. It will be an eye-opener,” said Asaduddin Owaisi.
Regarding the recent India-Pakistan cricket match, the AIMIM Chief took strong objection over pace bowler Mohd. Shami being targetted and trolled by netizens. “Cricket is a team game and we want India to always win. But to blame and hold Mohd Shami responsible for India’s defeat is unfair. This is nothing but radicalization and communal hatred being triggered by BJP,” said Asaduddin Owaisi.
