Bihar Elections: Owaisi Compares His Party’s State To A Popular Hindi Proverb
AIMIM gained five seats in Bihar from the Seemanchal region, a Muslim-dominated area
All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President Asaduddin Owaisi is rejoicing as his party has done well in the Bihar elections. Voters from Seemanchal, a highly Muslim dominated region in the state, gave the party its major chunk of votes. Winning five seats in total, comprising two in Purnia, two in Araria and one in Kishanganj, the outfit has made a place for itself in the political landscape of Bihar.
While talking to a channel during the vote counting yesterday, Owaisi compared the state of his party to the popular Hindi proverb ‘ Phas Gayi Razia Gundon Mein’, which means an innocent soul is stuck between thugs. He called out the rival parties for calling the AIMIM a vote-cutter on one hand and an anti-national force on the other.
On being asked about why he did not ally with any of the bigger alliances like the National Democratic Alliance or the Mahagathbandhan, the politician revealed that his state president had met many political parties before joining the Grand Democratic Secular Front (GDSF). He however chose to not reveal the parties his team had approached prior to the election.
Further, on being asked if he would join the NDA, he gave no straight answer except stating that he has vehemently opposed the BJP’s revocation of Article 370, the Citizenship Amendment Act and the Congress imposed Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). This makes the Muslim leader’s stance crystal clear.
