To date, no man has been born who can buy Asaduddin Owaisi with money, the Hyderabad MP said. His allegations are completely baseless and he is restless. He should worry about his home (party), as many of his people are joining the BJP. He has insulted the voters of Bihar and the people who voted for us.
What Mamta said
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said the BJP was trying to bring Asaduddin Owaisi’s party AIIIMM to Bengal. He said that by doing so, the BJP wanted to polarize sectarianism and divide Hindu-Muslim votes.
Addressing a rally in Jalpaiguri, Banerjee said the BJP was spending crores of rupees to bring the Hyderabad-based party here to split the Muslim vote. The plan is that the Hindu vote will go to the BJP’s court and the Muslim vote will go to the party in Hyderabad. He said he had done the same in the recent Bihar elections. This party is the B-team of BJP. West Bengal’s 294-member assembly elections are scheduled for April-May next year.
