Agra: Former BJP Mayor of Aligarh, Shakutala Bharti challenged All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi to contest from Aligarh if he is set for a ‘humiliating defeat’.
While addressing a gathering of women on the occasion of BJP Vishal Sankalp Mahila Sameelan on Friday, Bharti said that she will show Owaisi his real worth if he contests in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from Aligarh.
“Owaisi had used abusive language against ‘Bharat Mata’. All the women from Aligarh will respond aggressively as he is trying to destroy India,” Bharti said as quoted by the TOI.
Bharti said, “Is he planning to contest elections with the support of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) students?”. Bharti also said that Owaisi will not be allowed to enter any area of the city.
ex-Mayor claimed that BJP is the only party which gives equal space women and that the tickets would be distributed to deserving women contestants.
On Priyanka Gandhi’ entry to politics, Shakuntala said, “She has been in the politics for the past several years but this time, she has been brought to the fore as Congress knows Rahul can not do much for it in UP.”
