Commenting on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’, President of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Asaduddin Owaisi today said, “BJP’s slogan of ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’ is mere farce” – he was speaking in the wake of the appointment of Yogi Adityanath as UP CM. Speaking to India Today TV, Owaisi said, “A mere provision for a graveyard is constituted as appeasement because the whole environment that has been created in India, particularly in UP, is that Muslims are a threat to the nation.” He further said that there is a constitution duty of the government under article 29 and 30. So, this whole debate about UP verdict is nothing but a ‘majoritarian’ verdict and that is not good for a participative form of democracy of our country.
Owaisi on Sunday commented at BJP’s landslide victory in UP by saying that it is a big lesson for those who ‘cheated’ Muslims for past 70 years. Speaking to media at his party office soon after returning from Kishanganj, Owaisi blasted those who charged him and his party for helping BJP in elections. “I want to ask those who give lectures on secularism that why secular forces were defeated in Uttarakhand and Odisha (in local bodies elections) where my party did not put up candidates”, he said.
