All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday said that both the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) deliberately avoided talking about Muslim empowerment and their representation in the election campaign for the Gujarat Assembly election.
“Both national parties, in no way, tried to give a message that they are interested in getting Muslim votes (in Gujarat). They deliberately avoided talking about Muslim empowerment and Muslim representation, and the proof is that BJP did not give a single ticket to a Muslim. Congress gave six tickets and only three are now elected,” Owaisi said at a press conference here.
“They might win elections like this but our democracy will lose,” he added.
