AIMIM to contest in upcoming West Bengal assembly polls
First Published Jan 4, 2021, 12:10 PM IST
All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday (January 3) said that his party will contest in the upcoming 2021 West Bengal polls.
Owaisi said that he would speak to Bengal AIMIM leaders and if they are ready to contest in the upcoming assembly polls in Bengal then the party will take the final decision.
The AIMIM chief said, “I met Abbas Siddiqui today and our party will definitely take part in the upcoming Vidhan Sabha elections. Our party will stand with decisions that will be taken by Abbas Siddiqui.”
However, the party is yet to decide whether it would contest the elections on its own or forge an alliance with another political party.
Previously, Owaisi had decided to hold a virtual meeting with Siddiqui, but later he changed his mind and flew down to Bengal to pay him a visit.
Prominent Muslim leaders in the state, nonetheless, have claimed that equations are likely to change with the entry of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).
