‘Nobody can buy me’¦you haven’t met a real Muslim’: Owaisi slams Mamata

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has lost little time in hitting back at West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee who has called his team BJP’s “B team” and accused them of accepting money from India’s dominant party.

“If she is saying our party is getting money to divide minority votes, then I would like to tell her that nobody can buy Asaduddin Owaisi by offering money. Her allegations are baseless and she has become a victim of restlessness. She should care about her own party. So many of TMC members are joining BJP, she should be worrying about it,” he said.

“I would also like to tell Mamata Banerjee that the way she fought BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha elections, they still ended up getting around 18 seats there. Our party was not even present there.

“And the second thing is that she has insulted the voters of Bihar. She is trying to divert all her anger on Owaisi but she hasn’t yet encountered a real Muslim,” the AIMIM chief said.

Owaisi was in Lucknow to discuss party’s strategy for the 2022 Uttar Pradesh assembly polls. He has committed his party to ally with Om Prakash Rajbhar’s Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party in the state.
