BJP's victory in UP a lesson for those who cheated Muslims for

Press Trust of India  |  Kishanganj(Bihar) 

All (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi today said that BJP's victory in is a big lesson for those who 'cheated' Muslims for past 70 years.

Talking to reporters at party office here after touring Kishanganj, Owaisi questioned those who charged him and his party for helping in elections and said "I want to ask those who give lectures on secularism that why secular forces were defeated in and (in local bodies elections) where my party did not put up candidates".

For parties which claim to fight for Muslims' cause, he said the Sachar committee report exposes the plight of Muslims for these parties.

On becoming the UP Chief Minister, Owaisi, who is a member from Hyderabad, said that whoever becomes the Chief Minister, he will have to abide by the country's Constitution and laws.

In reply to a query, Owaisi, who was accompanied by party's unit chief Akhtarul Iman and others, said that people would vote for his party one day.

Stating that Seemanchal region is his second home, AIMIM chief said that he has not visited the area during poll time, rather he has always stood with the people of Seemanchal during floods or other disasters.

Notably, AIMIM had put up its candidates on some seats of Seemanchal region in assembly polls of 2015. The region comprises districts of Purnea, Katihar, Kishanganj, Araria having Muslim population in good numbers.

It was he who had raised the issue of floods in Seemanchal for the first time in and not the Kishanganj MP, he asserted.
