Bihar Elections: War on to attract Muslim votes
Political parties in Bihar are trying to outdo each other to woo minority votes ahead of the assembly polls .... Read Full
Patna: Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid Syed Ahmed Bukhari today accused the successive Congress, RJD and NDA governments in Bihar of "cheating the Muslims" and said he will launch a third front tomorrow to effectively take on the RJD-LJP combine and the ruling regime led by Nitish Kumar.
"The successive governments of Congress, RJD and now NDA have badly hoodwinked and cheated the muslims. They have used the community to the hilt for the sake of politics of votes," Bukhari, who arrived here this afternoon, told a group of reporters at Jayaprakash Narayan International airport here.
"I am here to explore forging of alliance with parties and organisations and groups with secular backgrounds. I will hold marathon discussions with them to rope in," he said.
Bukhari said he will announced a third front, a viable alternative to the NDA and RJD-LJP combine.
To a question as to whether he would try to rope in the Congress in the exercise, Independent MLA Dadan Pahelwan, who accompanied Bukhari from New Delhi, said Congress was "a non-entity" in Bihar and therefore, there was no question of forging alliance with it.
Bukhari lambasted the Nitish Kumar government for its "utter failure to deliver justice" to the minorities in Bihar.
