PATNA: Two Muslim organisations have vented their ire against RJD chief LaluPrasad and LJP president Ram Vilas Paswan. The All India United Muslim Morcha has urged the voters not to waste their votes by favouring Lalu in Pataliputra and Saran.
The Morcha sought their support for the organisation-sponsored Muslim candidates irrespective of their parties. National Dalit Muslim Front has alleged that both Lalu and Paswan were hands in glove with BJP PM-in-waiting L K Advani and blamed them for non-implementation of the recommendations of the Sachar Committee. Its president, M Imamul Haq, said, that “The Muslims should throw their votes in the Ganga, but not vote for the RJD and LJP.”
Morcha working president Kamal Ashraf said that as many as 17 Muslim candidates have been fielded by different parties, but no one has given ticket to any backward Muslim.
