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.

It is too disgusting that Shiv Sena is aiming for something which was nothing but an act of betrayal. Here the principles and ethos of the party are just sacrificed. The “chair” of Chief Minister is what the individual parties in Maharashtra are wanting so badly. And for this only Shiv Sena has severed its ties with its all-time ally BJP which emerged with the largest number of MLAs. Is it not the BJP with which Sena made the alliance before the election? Why so much bitter feelings after the poll result? Many past elections were fought on this mutual understanding. Sena had always taken pride and bragged about its power and clout as because the BJP was behind it. But now very contrary equation and chemistry are on display. NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena are sharing the ideas as opposed to the expectation of the whole electorate.

Democracy
Politics in India might lead to a sinking democracy.

One believes it’s Congress and its High common which Shiv Sena Supremo Late Bal Thackeray always disliked and ruthlessly held them up to ridicule. It was because they hold the opposing ideologies. But now his son Uddhav Thackeray kneeled down and sought the helping hand of those rival camps to walk the party through for the chair of Chief Minister. Going by the flood of comments on the social media, this party has ostensibly fallen from the grace. BJP is not a holy cow either. It is equally good at flexes its muscles for the power.

While Maharashtra is already under the president rule, the NCP and Congress now exploring all possible means to back Shiv Sena.   Uddhav Thackeray only wants to see his son Aditya Thackeray being the Chief Minister of one of the riches states in the country. The trend is not at all healthy. Here everything is utterly clear that the cherished values of democracy in India are fast eroding. Majority of the states in the country, only the “particularly families” are  always standing up to rule the roost. This is a bigger threat to the fundamental values of the country.The NATION is no more controlled by the government of the people, nor is it for the people. It is the government of the particular families which is formed for the fulfillment of the low greed and narrow aspiration of those particular families. Lastly, it is the common people who are always at the receiving end of the leaders’ whims and tantrums. Phew, the country is not at all in the safe hands.
