The country does not belong to Thackeray, Pawar, Owaisi, Modi, or Shah, but Adivasis,” the AIMIM leader said.
When anyone criticizes CM Thackeray, Pawar, Modi, or Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath, they (the respective party) react immediately and take action, ”but if we are criticized and comments passed against us, no no one reacts”, he said. Owaisi appealed to Muslims and others, including Dalits and OBCs, to understand that these ”so-called secular parties will never come to their assistance” as they are concerned only about their vote bank.
