Hyderabad-based AIMIM All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen has decided to contest the 2021 West Bengal elections and urged chief minister Mamata Banerjee – chief of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) – to determine whether she views the party like a friend or enemy.
The AIMIM, led by Asaduddin Owaisi, has never contested any election in Bengal and has no legal committee there.
Asim Waqar, AIMIM national spokesperson and Bengal observer, in his Tweeter in Hindi, tweeted as “It is true that we are fewer in number, but do not dare touch us. We are atom bombs. Didi, we welcome your friendship and enmity as well. You have to decide whether you consider us friends or foes,”
There has been some stress between the two parties since an AIMIM all-Bengal workers’ meet scheduled at Nazrul Mancha, a state-government run auditorium, was dropped at the last minute. No official at Nazrul Mancha was willing to speak on the issue since the auditorium is under the information and culture department managed by the chief minister.
Sayantan Basu the BJP Bengal unit general secretary told the AIMIM was hardly trying to bargain with the TMC for an electoral understanding.Share this to your,
