Hyderabad: AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday alleged that Congress president Rahul Gandhi registered a victory in Wayanad because 40 per cent population of the Lok Sabha seat in Kerala is Muslims.
While addressing a public gathering on Sunday, the Hyderabad MP added that he is still optimistic of getting Muslim’s place in the country.
“On 15 August 1947, our elders thought that this will be a new India. That India will be of Azad, Gandhi, Nehru, Ambedkar and of crores of their followers. I am still hopeful of getting our place in the country. We don’t want alms, we don’t want to survive on your alms,” Owaisi said.
“You don’t want to leave Congress and other secular parties. But remember they don’t have strength, thinking, they don’t work hard…Where did BJP lose? In Punjab. Who’s there? Sikhs. Why did BJP lose anywhere else in India? Due to regional parties there and not Congress. The Congress leader himself lost in Amethi and received victory in Wayanad. Isn’t 40 per cent population of Wayanad Muslim?” he added.
