After manifesting ‘good conductance’ in the Bihar Assembly polls, the AIMIM party on Sunday declared that it would compete for 100 seats in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections in 2022. All India Majils-e-Ittehadul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi stated they will challenge the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls in cooperation with Om Prakash Rajbhar-driven Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) and Bhaagidaari Sankalp Morcha, a front of smaller parties.
The Hyderabad MP, by tweeting in Hindi, declared that his party will oppose the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls. He usually vomits his message on social media platforms in English.
“Regarding Uttar Pradesh polls we have chosen to place our candidates in 100 seats. The party has initiated the process of selecting the candidates and has also issued the candidate/aspirants application forms,” Owaisi tweeted. In another tweet, the AIMIM head said”We are with OP Rajbhar Sahab ‘Bhaagidaari Sankalp Morcha’. We did not have any communication with any other party regarding elections or collaboration”.
Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh are scheduled for early the following year. In last year’s Bihar assembly polls, the AIMIM conquered five seats (it contested 20) in the Muslim-dominated Seemanchal area on the outskirts of West Bengal.
