"You visit the constituency you will find that there is no development at all since the time of independence. There are no schools, hospitals and other basic development is not yet fulfilled. We shall work for it at first. Now we are five, we shall turn twenty-five in future," he said.

Izhar Asfi, who won the from Bihar's Kochadhaman said that AIMIM candidates won due to the hard work of party chief Owaisi.

"If you can see that people have lost faith in NDA and supported the AIMIM now. We have gained victory due to the hard work of party Chief Barrister Asaduddin Owaisi," he told ANI.
