"Every election, we have cringe-worthy discussions about Dalit, Muslim & OBC voters. But rarely do we ever discuss how privileged, powerful groups vote. No insulting terms such as "appeasement", "votebank" & "caste card" are used for them," he tweeted.

AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi Thursday said “cringe-worthy” discussions take place in every election about Dalit, Muslim and OBC voters, but rarely are debates held on how “privileged and powerful groups” vote.

“Every election, we have cringe-worthy discussions about Dalit, Muslim & OBC voters. But rarely do we ever discuss how privileged, powerful groups vote. No insulting terms such as “appeasement”, “votebank” & “caste card” are used for them,” he tweeted. He was responding to media reports on why “upper caste Hindus voted for BJP like never before”.
