A non-BJP, non-Congress front is likely to form the government at the Centre, says Asaduddin Owaisi, firebrand leader and President of All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM). Owaisi said a regional leader is most likely to emerge as the Prime Minister.
He said the upcoming Lok Sabha polls will be an ‘open election’ and there will be a fight for every single seat of the total 543 constituencies.

“Unlike 2014, there is no Modi-wave this time. It is an open election and there will be a fight on every seat, including Hyderabad” Owaisi added. The three-time MP from the Hyderabad parliamentary constituency will be again contesting from the same seat. He said the AIMIM is definitely a part of the ‘non-BJP, non-Congress’ front led by the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) founder and Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao.
Owasi said “This front would be necessary to represent India’s political diversity and there are many regional leaders who are much more capable than Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress President Rahul Gandhi.”

Owaisi claimed that the BJP, out of desperation, was bringing the national security narrative in the poll discourse to hide its failures. “But people will not fall again on his jumlas’ (false promises) and will vote responsibly” said Owaisi. He pointed out the Balakot air strike and Mission Shakti as signs of desperation to win the election.
“Why it took five years for such a crucial test? Why he waited for election time. Was he waiting some auspicious moment? Was he worried about losing space along with people and TV? Why did he choose this time just days before polls”? asked Owaisi.
The AIMIM leader said the PM is only doing ‘jumlebazi’ to divert focus from unemployment, inflation, farm distress, corruption and other issues.
