It’s personal defeat of Modi: Asaduddin Owaisi on Bihar verdict

Hyderabad: MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday said the Bihar assembly elections result is a personal defeat of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“It’s a personal defeat of Modi as never before a prime minister campaigned so much in an election,” said the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief, whose party contested six of the 243 constituencies but drew a blank.

“Never before in the history of independent India, we had seen a sitting prime minister getting so involved and addressing more than 35 public meetings,” the Hyderabad MP told reporters at Darussalam, the MIM headquarters.

Stating that people of Bihar have given decisive mandate against communalism and fascism, he congratulated Nitish Kumar and other partners of Grand Alliance.

“The atmosphere in Bihar was that Modi should be defeated. Muslims and other communities had decided to defeat Modi,” he said.

Owaisi hoped that Nitish and the alliance would live up to people’s expectations and work for the development of Bihar, especially the backward region of Seemanchal.

Owaisi, whose party contested six seats in Seemanchal, said it would continue to fight for the development of the region and to get justice for the people.

While admitting that the MIM could not win the confidence of people, he said perhaps their hard work and the time was not sufficient.

“Many people told me that we should have started (the campaign) early. Others wanted us to continue our work to fight the long battle of Seemanchal,” said Owaisi.

The MP said the biggest takeaway for MIM from Bihar elections is that it made a beginning in that state and introduced itself to the people.

“The biggest takeaway is that we went there (and) established our organization. We will continue to go there, overcome our shortcomings and strengthen the party,” he said.

He was confident of a better performance in the next assembly elections.

The BJP on Monday held Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal responsible for the death of a sanitation worker in a drain saying that the government was playing with their lives as they are not given protective gear.

“This is not the first time that such an incident has happened. Due to the negligence of the government, sanitation staff goes for cleaning sewers and dies there after inhaling toxic fumes. They are never saved even after rescue operations,” Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari told reporters here.

His remarks come a day after a sanitation worker choked to death after he got trapped inside an underground drain while cleaning it in north Delhi’s Jahroda area.

The work of cleaning the drain was being carried out by the Delhi government’s flood control department.

“Sanitation workers are our helpers and Kejriwal government is playing with their lives,” he said.

Highlighting the deaths of sanitation workers in Delhi in the past few years, the BJP MP from the North East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency said that in September 2018, five sanitation workers died while in August 2017, 10 died inside sewers.

“Kejriwal is responsible for the deaths of sanitation workers who die while cleaning sewers and the investigating agencies should take action against him,” he said.

Attacking Kejriwal, Tiwari said, “During the last three to four years, more than 60 workers have died.”

He also accused Kejriwal of not fulfilling his promise of providing safety equipment to sewer workers and mechanical sweeping.

A senior Delhi Police official said that it has registered a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code over the death of the sanitation worker.

The sanitation worker has been identified as Kishan, 37, a resident of north Delhi’s Wazirabad area.
