What is the value of Muslim vote in UP? Owaisi targets BJP, SP, BSP in handling
AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday targeted the Yogi Adityanath-led government at a public rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal and said 37 per cent of BJP MLAs have criminal cases and no one is raising their voice against it.
The Hyderabad MP said, “37 per cent of BJP MLAs have criminal cases, why no one raises their voice… Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath himself withdrew the criminal case against him and no one said anything.”
The AIMIM chief further said that assembly elections are near in the state, and efforts should be made to prevent the BJP from winning again.
“I promise that if we (AIMIM) win, the poor man will be taken care of as I am standing there,” Owaisi said.
Owaisi slams CM Yogi Adityanath over ’37 per cent of Muslims were shot in encounters’ remark, Owaisi says in second wave of Covid, patients died due to lack of medicines in hospitals, funerals to families Wood was not found for this while the bodies were floating in the Ganges. And CM Yogi claims that the BJP government has done everything for the people in the last 4 years.
While addressing the Muslims in Sambhal, Owaisi said that how long will you continue to vote for Mamta, Akhilesh, Rahul or BSP?
Owaisi further said, “How long will you give them strength and keep weakening yourself? I have come to appeal to you that we will definitely defeat the BJP but we will defeat it strongly.”
Targeting the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party, Owaisi said that 50 thousand Muslims and other brothers were rendered homeless in the Muzaffarnagar riots. Where the Yogi government is withdrawing 70 cases, no one raised their voice on it.
The AIMIM supremo further said, “If anyone speaks against BJP, Modi, Yogi and RSS, then we are its AIMIM. On the implementation of CAA, we said in front of 300 BJP MPs in Parliament that this law is against the Constitution. India.”
Attacking Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati, Owaisi said, “BJP is winning not because of Muslim voters but because of Samajwadi Party voters, Bahujan Samaj Party and Congress voters are drinking tea sitting on Modi’s lap.
“You are scared, the responsibility has been thrown on your shoulders and a bell has been put around our neck. Now, our voice should be raised and the question should be asked what is the cost of Muslim votes in UP? From Akhilesh Yadav Ask, Mayawati what is the value of Muslim votes?
Meanwhile, tensions flared up in Sirsi after posters of AIMIM appeared in which Sambhal was referred to as the “land of the Ghazis”, an apparent reference to Islamic warriors. The posters were seen ahead of AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi’s meeting in Sirsi, where he took on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for his “Abba Jaan” remark.
However, BJP strongly opposed the posters, following which the activists of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) removed them.
Adityanath made this remark in an apparent reference to the Muslim community and the Samajwadi Party that those who call “Abba Jaan” used to digest ration earlier.
The AIMIM had recently announced that it would contest 100 seats in the state assembly elections next year in alliance with the Om Prakash Rajbhar-led Bhagidari Sankalp Morcha.
