AIMIM challenge to Lucknow: ‘Permission or not, Owaisi will come to UP, meet people’

“If they give permission to hold a public meeting in Lucknow, he (Owaisi) will return on the same day. Otherwise he will stay for two days and visit several other districts,” Shaukat Ali, AIMIM’s UP president, told The Indian Express.

AWAITING PERMISSION from the district administration for a public meeting of their chief Asaduddin Owaisi in Lucknow, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) has said that the Hyderabad MP will visit the state even if the administration does not allow their leader to address a gathering.

“If they give permission to hold a public meeting in Lucknow, he (Owaisi) will return on the same day. Otherwise he will stay for two days and visit several other districts,” Shaukat Ali, AIMIM’s UP president, told The Indian Express.

The party has approached Lucknow administration seeking permission to hold Owaisi’s public meeting on March 17 at Refah-e-Aam Club ground in Lucknow. “We had submitted our application two days ago but have not received any confirmation. We are not bothered about the outcome as Owaisi will come here in any case,” Shaukat said.

The AIMIM argued that there is “little time” left for the 2017 assembly polls in the state, which it cannot waste in waiting for permission.
“It is too late and there is little time left for the polls next year. Hence, causing delay on things such as permission cannot be accepted. Owaisi will come to meet people,” Sajid Hashmat, party’s state executive committee member, said.

The AIMIM has drawn up a plan for Owaisi’s visit. Besides addressing a public meeting in Lucknow, the MP is expected to visit Islamic seminary Nadwatul Uloom and Dargah of Haji Waris Ali Shah in Dewa Shareed (Barabanki). On the next day, he will visit eastern districts of UP.

Lucknow’s Additional District Magistrate (West) J S Dubey said he is not aware of any such request from the AIMIM.
