After Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu attacked Asaduddin Owaisi during his appeal to Muslims in Bihar's Purnia to vote in unison to throw out the current Modi government, the AIMIM chief has responded to the Punjab minister.
Navjot Singh Sidhu targeted Asaduddin Owaisi saying he divided Muslim votes, after which he called out the '64 per cent Muslim population' in the region to vote to remove the government-led by PM Modi.
"Muslim brother, people like Owaisi want to win by dividing the Muslim vote here. 64% is your (Muslim) population is in majority here and if you will get together and cast your votes, then Modi will be finished," said Sidhu in a public rally in Purnia on Tuesday.
Following this, Owaisi hit back at Sidhu reminding him that he was earlier with the BJP, the same party he has accused of dividing people. He also spoke about his work for Seemanchal and future campaigning in Punjab.
AIMIM's Waris Pathan also accused the Congress of polarisation and failing to provide empowerment to the community they sought votes from.
He also said slammed Sidhu for violating the Model Code of Conduct.
