Amid the ongoing political crisis in Maharashtra, AIMIM chief Asaddudin Owaisi on Tuesday reflected upon the crisis and said that his party will not extend support neither to a BJP-led government and nor to a Shiv Sena-led government. Owaisi slammed the Congress party and said that the INC is now showing its 'true colours'. The AIMIM chief also spoke about the recent monumental Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya land dispute and said that the struggle was not just for a piece of land.
AIMIM chief Asaddudin Owaisi while speaking to the media on Tuesday said, "People of Maharashtra need a government. I have said this before as well, our party will not support if the government is BJP-led neither will we support a Sena-led government. Congress party is also showing its true colours. I had always known that they would show their colours one day." While speaking about the Supreme Court verdict, Owaisi said, "Was this struggle only for a piece of land? No. I feel people who are asking me to accept are demeaning me. You do not know why we went to court. This legal fight was fought to ensure that this injustice done to be repealed and justice be done to us."
In a minute-by-minute changing dynamics of Maharashtra politics, Congress leader KC Venugopal said that Congress is still discussing the formation of a government with the NCP and has to extended Outer support to the Shiv Sena. This official declaration came even as Shiv Sena reached its deadline of 7.30 PM to form the government in Maharashtra. The NCP, on the other hand, placed the onus of decision-making on Congress, saying they will take the decision only after Congress decides. After Shiv Sena breached its deadline on Monday, the Governor invited the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) to form government. On Tuesday, Congress' Mallikarjun Kharge, Ahmed Patel and KC Venugopal are expected to meet NCP leaders to hold talks. Meanwhile, Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant also resigned from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's cabinet.
