UP elections 2022: With the Uttar Pradesh State Assembly elections approaching, AIMIM Chairman Asaduddin Owaisi today criticized the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and other opposition parties while addressing a rally in Meerut. Owaisi also discussed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet decision to raise the minimum age of marriage for women from 18 to 21. Raising the issue, Uwais asked why Modi Ji hates marriage so much?
“Now the Prime Minister said the legal age for a woman to marry is 21… By law, you can maintain sexual relations with a woman at 18, but you can’t marry her at 18? Modi Ji Ji, why do you hate marriage so much? Why are you worried? In the name of an institution like marriage? “One can vote at the age of 18, and one can decide on the nation’s prime minister…but one cannot marry according to Modi Ji.”
Al Owaisi added that after today’s speech, the BJP will say that Al Owais and Muslims do not speak for the welfare of women. Now the BJP will say that Al Owais and Muslims do not speak for women. Modi Ji, when did you become our uncle? You must have seen uncles in your area. They have no business, they sit down and ask questions … Now Uncle says “Don’t marry.”
Al-Owaisi alleged that MoS Home Ajay Mishra Teni had plotted and as a result, his son killed 4 farmers but Prime Minister Modi did not remove the Teni as he did not want to disturb the Brahmin community.
Al-Owaisi claimed that the MLAs and the Muslim parliamentarians who won in the past did not represent the community but rather the party that won the elections with its symbol. He appealed to the Muslims of Uttar Pradesh to unite and vote to choose their leader. “I am here to appeal to all of you that the 19 percent of UP Muslims need their political power, leadership and participation, to gain respect and education for our young people and to stop torture and discrimination. … When will Muslims wake up?” Al-Owaisi said.
Uttar Pradesh state assembly elections will be held early next year.
