AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi reached Gujarat on Monday. Here he went to meet former MP Atiq Ahmed at Sabarmati Central Jail in Ahmedabad but he was not allowed. After this, Owaisi took target from Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to the Gujarat government. He also targeted Congress MP Rahul Gandhi.
Taking a jibe at UP CM Yogi, he said that he says that politics of appeasement is happening. Who is doing the politics of appeasement? Why does he speak Abbajan? Dad should have spoken. He is doing dog vigil politics.
‘Swimming dead bodies in the Ganges also politics of appeasement?’
Owaisi said that records show that 33 lakh youth are unemployed in UP. The only government data is that there is 10 percent unemployment. People did not get wood for the last rites on the banks of the river, the dogs ate the dead bodies, people died due to oxygen. The dead bodies were floating on the Ganges, so was it all politics of appeasement?
‘Why Rahul Gandhi lost the election in Amethi?’
On the allegation of Congress’s Team B, he said that in 2019, we contested on three Lok Sabha seats. Hyderabad, Aurangabad and Kishanganj Bihar. Live on all three. Amethi was the seat of Rahul Gandhi’s ancestors, we did not have any candidate there. Why did Rahul Gandhi lose the election there? He won from Wayanad, where 30% is Muslim.
‘We are thick skinned’
Owaisi said that in most of the states where we are not, Congress MLAs are leaving the party and joining BJP after winning. We have always opposed BJP in Parliament. Congress can make as many allegations as it wants. I have thick skin. We are ready to face all charges. Call us Team B, Vote Katwa, it doesn’t matter.
Announced to contest Gujarat elections
The AIMIM Chief announced that in the coming time, our party will participate in the Gujarat Assembly elections. Here we are strengthening our organization in many seats. Our Gujarat unit will decide on how many seats we will contest. We will fight the assembly elections with strength.
AIMIM sources told in Hyderabad that Owaisi was to reach Sabarmati Central Jail at 11 am to meet Atiq Ahmed. The SP Central Prison refused to allow them to meet, citing the Kovid-19 epidemic.
Ateeq’s wife had attended Owaisi’s party this month
Let us tell you that Shaista Parveen, wife of Atiq Ahmed, joined AIMIM in the presence of Owaisi in Lucknow earlier this month. Former Samajwadi Party leaders also joined AIMIM in absentia. Owaisi included Atiq Ahmed and his wife by claiming that SP and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) used Muslims as slaves in their parties.
Five-time MLA and one-time MP Ateeq Ahmed has over 90 criminal cases including murder, kidnapping, illegal mining, extortion, intimidation and cheating. He was transferred from Uttar Pradesh to Gujarat in 2019 on the directions of the Supreme Court.
