The AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi was seen getting infuriated with the West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s comments on his party. She on Monday referred to Owaisi’s party as “extremists among minorities”. On which Owaisi said it was not religious extremism to say that West Bengal’s Muslims have “one of the worst human development indicators of any minority”.

Mamata Banerjee, speaking at a rally in Cooch Behar district of West Bengal on Monday, had referred to the AIMIM chief, saying that she was “watching some extremists among minorities” who were based in Hyderabad. She asked people not to trust forces that were creating differences between communities and cautioned against Hindu extremists, said sources. “There is a political party and they are taking money from the BJP, they are from Hyderabad, not from West Bengal,” Hindustan Times quoted her saying.

On which AIMIM Chief Owaisi tweeted:

Lok Sabha Polls were held in April and May 2019 in which BJP gave tough competition to Banerjee’s TMC by winning 18 seats out of 42 seats, only four fewer than TMC.

He also said, “By making allegations against me you are giving the message to Muslims of Bengal that the party [AIMIM] has become a formidable force in the state,” Hindustan Times reported. “Mamata Banerjee is showcasing her fear and frustration by making such comments.”

The politics of West Bengal keep getting interesting with more political parties competing over the CM’s chair. The West Bengal Assembly elections are going to be held in 2021.
