With Maharashtra Sssembly elections on the doorstep, chief of the AIMIM, Asaduddin Owaisi was seen performing a dance step at the campaign rally in Aurangabad. This happened as Owaisi was walking down from the stage after addressing a rally at Paithan Gate in Aurangabad. He was seen doing the famous kite-flying step which has an apparent resemblance to the party symbol of AIMIM. The AIMIM party is contesting on various seats in Maharashtra elections and Asaduddin Owaisi has been vigorously campaigning in the State for his party's candidates.
Addressing the rally, he said, "I believe that the Prime Minister raises controversial issues during the elections so that he can give a message to RSS and right-wing people. In English, it is called dog-whistle politics. He is saying that the 93-bomb blast victim did not get justice. Prime Minister is wrong in saying these, all accused have been punished and Yakub was even hanged to death. But I want to ask him whether he will do justice on the advice of Justice Shri Krishna Commission report. He doesn't speak on it".

In an older rally, Owaisi called out BJP by saying that it’s a “drama company”. The AIMIM chief said that BJP is "successful" as the Congress has "weakened" and it did not have a "fighting spirit" anymore. He said, "This drama company (BJP) is successful because Congress has weakened. It is on the verge of being finished. It does not have a fighting spirit anymore. Where was it when the law (Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act) by Indira Gandhi was made dirtier and stricter by the Modi government?"
In the same rally, Asaduddin Owaisi spoke about the lack of jobs in the country and said, "When we asked the BJP how many jobs you gave, Maharashtra Chief Minister (Devendra Fadnavis) said that we will give one crore jobs if we form the government. Kya Aakhri Paanch Saalo Se Mehendi Laagake Baithe The Kya? (Had you applied henna on your hands in the last five years?) Who stopped you from giving jobs? You were supposed to give, but you didn't. Modi had said that 'make me a 'Chowkidar' (watchman), I will give two crore jobs every year.' But even 15 lakh jobs were not created. You tell me, whom do we trust."
