AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi who is the Hyderabad MP is a very happy man. After winning a number of seats in Mumbai elections Owaisi said that it is time for th secular parties to make some introspection and work for the elections and also the welfare of the people.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s big gains in the elections, Owaisi, in an obvious reference to Congress which put up a poor show in the polls, said at least now secular parties should stop blaming him for splitting secular votes.
“Secular parties should do some introspection and see why are they losing elections after elections to BJP and Shiv Sena. Now the time has come for them to leave their arrogance and do self-introspection.
There is no point blaming MIM every time. You (Congress) are losing your vote. You have lost every where. Now, it’s the time for them to do reality check, introspection. Show humbleness instead of being arrogant even in defeat,” Owaisi said.
“From day one there has been no truth in this obnoxious allegation that his party splits secular votes. Look at the results. There is definitely something wrong with Congress. That’s why they are losing elections after elections,” he added.
Apart from Mumbai, the municipal corporations which went to polls in Maharashtra on February 21 were Thane, Ulhasnagar, Nashik, Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad, Solapur, Akola, Amravati and Nagpur.
About 56 per cent voters had exercised their franchise across ten civic bodies, including the cash-rich BMC, which recorded a 55 per cent turnout.
