Lucknow: The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) did not win a single seat in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election. Its leader, Asaduddin Owaisi, who aspires to expand his party’s base beyond Hyderabad, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh, has failed to capture the hearts of people in the Hindi heartland.
This time, his party ran for 97 seats. AIMIM ran for 38 seats in the last election. Despite fielding 97 candidates, the party was unable to secure a single seat.
Owaisi’s party, which has Muslim community backing, is frequently referred to as the “B team of the BJP” by political parties, who argue that AIMIM weakens secular parties’ prospects of victory by dividing Muslim community votes.
The AIMIM had pre-election alliances with the Bharat Mukti Morcha and the Jan Adhikar Party. By blaming EVMs, all political parties are attempting to disguise their failure. It is not the problem of the EVMs, but of the chip in people’s minds. There was a victory but 80-20, but we believe we can do better next time, said Asaduddin Owaisi.
In the Bihar Assembly election, Owaisi’s party won five seats. The party ran for 20 seats. The party has two legislators and one MP from Maharashtra.
Meanwhile, many BJP leaders took to KOO to hail the BJP’s performance in the elections. They hailed the party’s supreme leader Narendra Modi for the superb performance of the party.
