New Delhi: AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday said that the Congress party has been "wiped out" from the landscape and can't be revived even if it was administered a "calcium injection." The leader said this while addressing a public meeting for the October 21 Maharashtra assembly elections.
Mr. Owaisi claimed the top leadership of Congress has "ignored" important elections in Maharashtra and Haryana.
"The Congress has been wiped out from the political spectrum of the country. It can't be revived even by a calcium injection," he said.
AIMIM chief slammed the BJP. He said the ruling party has passed a bill in Himachal Pradesh making it mandatory for a citizen to give a one-month notice for religious conversion.
"I will not be surprised if (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi brings such bill in Parliament," he said.
In the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) had contested the polls in-coalition with the Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh (BBM) of PrakashAmbedkar under the aegis of the Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) in Maharashtra. The VBA had won Aurangabad Lok Sabha seat.
Many candidates of Congress were affected due to the split votes of Dalits and Muslims in Maharashtra in the polls.
AIMIM had won two seats in the 2014 assembly elections. The party has been in talks with BBM leader Prakash Ambedkar for the upcoming Maharashtra elections.
However, the talks between the two parties have hit a roadblock over the allocation of seats.
The AIMIM is not happy with the BBM for offering it "meager" number of seats and their alliance seems to be over.
However, Mr. Ambedkar lately denied that the VBA had closed its doors on the AIMIM. He also said he was always open to discussions.
