New Delhi: Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Abu Asim Azmi said that Asauddin Owaisi led All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) would be blown out in the face of an SP storm in the coming elections in Uttar Pradesh.
”Since the BJP knows that it is losing, it wants some Owaisis or Azads to enter the electoral fray or the BSP fields Muslim candidates to divide their votes. But the people are now aler,” he added.
Talking to reporters after a meeting in Bhadohi of party organisations, Maharashtra SP president Azmi said UP can achieve development only if Akhilesh Yadav leads the state as the Chief Minister. Speaking about Congress, he said that there is a need for the party to improve its organisation. “It should have a leader who is aware of the conditions prevailing in the country, who talks about farmers and knows how to speak Hindi well,” the SP leader added.
Asserting that the Congress has demanded 70 seats from its allies in Bihar and performed poorly, Abu Azmi said that the party did the same in West Bengal as well. Alleging that the Congress is not realising the reality, he said, “We want a national party like the Congress to be strong.” It has to first strengthen itself in places where there are no parties like the SP, the leader added.
