Owaisi said, “Congress has weakened, strength can’t be infused into it even if the best calcium injection of the world is administered to it. They’re going downwards now, no one can pick them up because they themselves aren’t ready to put up a fight.”
He said that Congress party’s top heads have been “ignoring” the important election in Maharashtra and Haryana. His statement comes at a time when the opposition Congress party has seen an exodus of prominent senior leaders. Several sitting MLAs of Congress switched sides and joined BJP.
Pointing the actions of BJP, Owaisi said the ruling party has passed a bill in Himachal Pradesh making it mandatory for a citizen to give a one month notice for religious conversion. The AIMIM Hyderabad MP said, “I will not be surprised if (Narendra Modi) He brings such bill in Parliament”.
The AIMIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen) had contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra along with Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh (BBM) of Prakash Ambedkar under the aid of Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA).
AIMIM has won two seats in 2014 assembly election. The VBA had won two Aurangabad Lok Sabha seats. It affects splitting the votes amongst Muslims and Dalits which alters the prospects of many candidates of the Congress in Maharashtra in the polls.
For the upcoming Maharashtra election, MIM and BBM were in talks to combine but both the party went their way as there was dissatisfaction over seat allocation. The MIM is disappointed over the “meagre” number of seats offered by BBM.
However, Ambedkar recently denied the VBA had closed its doors on the AIMIM and said he was always open for discussions.
