Akbaruddin Owaisi, a leader of AIMIM is sparking another row by claiming that the alliance of the BJP and AIMIM can wipe out the Congress from the country. He called the Congress leaders are ‘slaves of the Gandhis’ and is pushing the agenda of a ‘Congress Mukt Bharat’.
Owaisi Jr. made these remarks in a video that has gone viral on social media.
The Congress has been saying that MIM was always a B-team of the BJP and now, with such comments being made by an MIM leader, it has just come out in the open.
Both Owaisi Jr. and Owaisi Sr. have been known to make very extreme public statements that are often on communal lines, as well. It is also known that BJP has many leaders who are known for being ‘hot headed’ and talk about certain ideologies quite openly. Coming together of such parties, for these reasons, would be quite curious.

The congress is claiming that such moves are BJP’s attempt to polarize the elections in many areas, with BJP raising the issue of Hindutva and MIM doing the same with the Muslim community.
