Anti-incumbency to hit parties joining hands with Samajwadi Party, says asaduddin Owaisi
Amid speculation about a “maha-gathbandhan’ (grand alliance) in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh, AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi has said parties joining hands with the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) would be weighed down by anti-incumbency and other factors.
Owaisi, whose party has made no secret of its desire to make an electoral impact in Uttar Pradesh Assembly election due early next year, sought to point out feud in the ruling (Mulayam) Yadav family, saying: “Shivpal Yadav) and Akhilesh Yadav, their heart and mind are not together”.
Secondly, the Hyderabad Lok Sabha member said there is a huge anti-incumbency against the Samajwadi Party for many reasons - for not stopping communal riots, for not fulfilling their promises and only working for the one Yadav Parivar. “So, whatever gathbandhan, they carry anti-incumbency of SP. Moreover, uncle and nephew are at loggerheads, grabbing each other’s throats in full public view,” Owaisi said.
