Mumbai, Feb 15: AIMIM’s (All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen) second in command Akbaruddin Owaisi on Wednesday addressing a rally in the financial capital of India said no one did anything for Muslims. “We trusted everybody, we regarded everyone to be a part of us, we gave votes so that our kids get ‘Madarsas’ for education and basic facilities. We gave votes thinking that our situation will improve and we might be modernized, but nothing of this sort happened,” said Akbaruddin.Also Read - UP Elections 2022: AIMIM to Contest on 100 Seats, Alliance Only With OP Rajbhar's Party, Says Owaisi
The junior Owaisi told voters that no one cared for Muslims in India and all the report say that Muslims lag behind. “Pick up any report, be it Sachchar committee report, Kundu committee report, Gopal Singh commission report made by Indira Gandhi, Ranganath Mishra committee report, all these reports suggest that Muslims lag behind in all aspects be it for roti, jobs, or anything else,” added Akbaruddin. For all this, he blamed the Muslims community for not having a political voice. Also Read - BSP to Fight UP, Uttarakhand Assembly Polls Alone, Says Mayawati as Reports of Tie-up With AIMIM Emerge

Today, I am standing here and lashing out at all secular parties because they did not be fair to you, Owaisi told his voters. “Pointing out at the government jobs, Owaisi said, in police, there are only 3 per cent of Muslims, only 2.4 per cent Muslims out of 100 graduates and out of 100 women graduates, only 1.4 Muslims graduate girls are there.” Adding further he said Muslims in total contribute to 12 per cent population which is 1 crore 3 lakhs but in reality, the growth rate is too low.
AIMIM in their manifesto has promised to provide water and food to people living in slums for Rs 5 for the working class. It also promised to set up mineral water treatment plant to provide pure and safe drinking water for all.
