AIMM's national president Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday appealed to the people to vote for his party, that Congress is asking Muslim votes by showing them the fear of the BJP even though atrocities like Bhagalpur riots and unlocking of the Babri mosque premises had taken place during its rule.
Addressing a rally of its candidate in Kishanganj, a Muslim-dominated parliamentary constituency, Asaduddin Owaisi said I had warned you people during the 2015 Assembly polls not to be fooled by the promises of the so-called Mahagathbandhan. You did not pay heed and ended up voting for Nitish Kumar who is now sitting in the BJPs lap. You must not repeat the same mistake again when haath (Congress poll symbol) wallahs are again seeking your votes with nothing more to offer other than the fear of BJP. You must not forget this party was in power when the Bhagalpur riots took place and when the premises of the Babri Masjid were unlocked, Owaisi said.
Owaisi told the people that now you have this golden opportunity. You must ask Congress why it stopped its own late MP Asrarul Haque from speaking on the triple talaq debate on the floor of the Parliament, he said. He alleged that since Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, the cases of atrocities against the poor, minorities have increased.
