Asaduddin Owaisi On Congress: All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Chief Asaduddin Owaisi targeted Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday (September 18). He said that whether the government was of Congress or BJP, injustice has always been done to Muslims. The Hyderabad MP’s statement comes after Rahul Gandhi’s statement in which he called Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), AIMIM and BJP as one party."text-align: justify;">He said, "There has always been injustice to Muslims in the country, this has been going on since 1952. Those who say that injustice has started happening to Muslims after 2014 are wrong. Whether there has been a Congress or BJP government in the country, injustice has always been done to Muslims."
‘Muslims made Rahul Gandhi win in Wayanad’
He said, “Rahul Gandhi lost in Amethi, but won in Wayanad. Asaduddin Owaisi did not contest elections there. I did not have any deal with BJP there. He won from Wayanad because there is Muslim League there. Muslim League saved him from drowning. In such a situation, Congress should also understand that they will have to support Muslims also.”
Congress should compete with BJP on ideology
Regarding India Alliance, he said that we are not in India Alliance and I am not worried about it. He said, “Why don’t you compete with BJP on ideology.” You will first say that the atmosphere is so bad that we cannot give tickets to you (Muslims), because if we give you tickets then Hindus will not vote for us. I am saying it openly, they say this behind closed walls.”
Broke alliance with Badruddin Ajmal
Owaisi said, "Congress made an alliance with Badruddin Ajmal in Assam and broke the alliance with his party only after the elections and then started abusing him (Badruddin Ajmal), whereas Congress had won most of the seats in Assam only because of him."
Allegation of betraying Muslims
He alleged that Congress has always worked to deceive Muslims. Now the time has come that Muslims will have to choose their leader and also see who is talking about their rights. The AIMIM chief further said that if someone’s house is being demolished in the country today, it is the house of Muslims.
BRS, AIMIM and BJP are working together
While addressing a rally in Hyderabad, Telangana on Sunday (September 17), Rahul Gandhi had said that Congress is only working with Bharat Rashtra Samithi. Not fighting. Along with BRS, she is also fighting BJP and AIMIM. They call themselves different parties, but they are all working together.
