In a show of support to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Gujarat assembly election, members of at least a dozen Muslim organisations from Bihar will visit Gujarat to campaign for the saffron party and “end Congress’s politics of fear”. As per the press statement issued on November 25, convener of Aligarh Muslim University Old Boys Organization (AMUOBO), Rais Azam will lead members of these organizations and they will start for Gujarat on November 28.
In the statement Azam has blasted Congress for using Muslim community for votes by instilling in them fear of the saffron party.
“For last 66 years, Congress has gathered Muslim votes by instilling in them fear of Jan Sangh, RSS, BJP or Lal Krishna Advani, Narendra Modi. Congress’s agenda for seeking votes was never based on social, political, education and economic rights. Even in Gujarat, the party leaders are showing them the fear of BJP and Narendra Modi,” the statement reads.
It further points out that the delegation will interact with the Muslim community of Gujarat and tell them that Congress, which is asking for votes making Gujarat riots an issue, has orchestrated many riots in the country. There were more incidents of riots in states where Congress was in power, the statement says.
