AIMIM’s Key Bengal Leader, Aides Join TMC Ahead Of 2021 Polls

Kolkata: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) West Bengal unit leader Anwar Pasha with some of his colleagues joined Trinamool Congress on Monday, claiming that Asaduddin Owaisi-led party was only acting as a “polariser of votes” to help the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Pasha has officially joined the TMC from its state headquarters in Kolkata even before the party has officially announced its intentions to fight the state elections just a few months away.

Pasha also said those who are eyeing Bengal at present, whether “wearing saffron or green”, should know that there is no place for such division in this state.

“AIMIM had a hand in polarisation of votes in Bihar and thus helping BJP in forming a government there, but this will not happen in Bengal,” he said.

However, senior AIMIM leader and in-charge of Bengal, Asim Waqar refused to give much importance to the development and urged the TMC not to fool the masses with their “dirty tricks”.

“Those who have joined the TMC today are neither leaders nor office bearers of the state AIMIM unit. They are just party workers, just like lakhs of AIMIM workers across the state. The TMC should stop pursuing such dirty tricks. Their joining would not have any impact on our prospects in Bengal,” Waqar said.

West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh also reacted to the development and said there was no surprise in their crossing over to the TMC.

“It is natural that AIMIM workers will join the TMC. They have found their true calling in the TMC. Both parties are communal. They are not interested in the development of the masses but in appeasement politics,” Ghosh told reporters.

Elections to the 294-member West Bengal Assembly are due in April-May next year.
