Union Minister and BJP leader Giriraj Singh on Friday attacked the Congress-RJD alliance in Bihar linked to the polls, alleging that a “sympathizer” of Mohammad Ali Jinnah was sent from Jale headquarters.
Congress gave a ticket to Maskoor Ahmad Usmani to challenge the Bihar polls of the Jale assembly segment in the Darbhanga district.
Referring to reports that MA Jinnah’s portrait was found in the Student Union office at Aligarh Muslim University when Mr. Usmani was president of the body, Mr. Singh said: “Congress has gave the ticket to a supporter of Jinnah who divided India in two “.
“Now the leaders of Mahagathbandhan (The Grand Alliance) will have to respond to the people of the country if they also support the ideology of the founder of Pakistan, ”he said.
The RJD leaders, who dream of running the state, will have to speak out on this issue, Singh said without naming Tejashwi Yadav.
The Union Minister also alleged that Bihar had become the headquarters of SIMI at the time when the Supreme of the RJD, Lalu Prasad Yadav, was the chief minister.
Claiming that the leaders of the Grand Alliance “can go to any extent for political reasons,” Singh called on the people of Bihar not to be “misled” by these parties. “Don’t do anything that is not in the best interests of Bihar and the country.”
Violence erupted on the campus of Aligarh Muslim University in Uttar Pradesh two years ago as the dispute over the portrait of Muhammad Ali Jinnah on campus sparked a protest.
The WBU spokesperson at the time said that Mr. A Jinnah was a founding member of the university tribunal and granted life membership to the student union. “Traditionally, photographs of all life members are placed on the walls of the student union,” he said.
Elections for the Bihar Assembly, made up of 243 members, will be held in three phases: October 28, November 3 and November 7. The coalition of RJD, Congress and left-wing parties is the main opponent of the ruling JD (U) -BJP alliance in the elections.
