“This is that team which the BJP time and again in the past and now again has used to promote and to implement an agenda of polarisation, of hate and envy, of mutual enmity and destruction, using or misusing the ilk of people like Owaisis,” he said.
Singhvi said this is the handiwork of the ‘dirty tricks department’ of the BJP which spreads this “to create polarisation for cheap politics and cheap votes”.
“The object of this is only one to create Hindu versus Muslim, caste versus caste, region versus region, Indian versus Indian and in effect everybody versus everybody.
“I am shocked and aghast that the party which is in power does not have this much responsibility and stands exposed.
Every time they do so, we will expose them again,” he said.
AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi today shocked with his “Muslim only” votes” remarks, asking Muslims to help win 50 seats in Parliament.
