GUWAHATI, Nov 9: ‘A star player may not play all matches well’ is what BJP’s tiol Minority Morcha president Abdul Rashid Ansari said on the poll debacle of the BJP in Bihar. He, however, expressed his respect to the people’s mandate in Bihar.
Ansari was on a three-day visit to Assam since November 7 and he wound up his visit after addressing the press at Atal Behari Vajpayee Bhavan in Guwahati today.
Talking to newsmen, Ansari said: “A star player may not play all matches well. This is what happened to the BJP in Bihar polls. We take all elections seriously, and took Bihar polls also very seriously.”
Ansari said that the minority morcha took it seriously that the minority people in Bihar rejected the BJP. “The top leaders of the party will alyse the poll debacle of the party in Bihar. On behalf of the Morcha, I myself will alyse the reasons behind the defeat of the party in Bihar,” he said, and asked the Assam BJP workers not to be frustrated with the Bihar poll results. He also appealed to the minority people of Assam, who, according to him, have a 60-year-old history of deprivation, to take the taste of development under various schemes of the government at the Centre led by rendra Modi.
Since the Minority Morcha in Assam has enrolled three lakh minority members in the Morcha, Ansari said, the Morcha should meet at least five lakh minority families in the State.
Earlier in the day, Ansari visited Madhab Mandir and Poa Mecca at Hajo. He was awestruck to have seen the love and harmony among the people in Hajo. He said that the BJP leadership has asked them to campaign in favour of development and against corruption. “By development, we mean inclusive development, not exclusive,” he said.
State Minority Morcha president of the party, Mominul Aowal, general secretaries Mahir Uddin Ahmed and Matiur Rahman and State Minority Morcha in-charge and State BJP vice president Harekrish Bharali were also with him.
