The All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen party would go national to preserve the composite culture of India and prevent the BJP-led majoritarianism from taking over the polity of the country, the party president Asaduddin Owaisi declared on Thursday.

Asaduddin Owaisi, won the Hyderabad parliamentary seat by nearly three lakh votes over BJP’s Bhagwant Rao, who secured less than two and a half lakh votes. Owaisi now has set his eyes on West Bengal and Assam, where he has promised to fight next.

For the first time, AMIM decided to contest outside its traditional stronghold of Hyderabad, and make forays in Aurangabad in Maharashtra and Kishanganj in Bihar. Known traditionally as a family-run party, ever since AMIM first won the Hyderabad parliamentary seat in 1984, many political pundits scoffed at the idea, citing examples of how MIM fizzled out after tasting initial success.

Speaking to reporters after his fourth consecutive win from the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency at his party headquarters, Owaisi said while he would have preferred a different outcome in the Lok Sabha elections, he respects the verdict of the people of the country.

“What happened to the allegations now of MIM being a B-team and benefitting BJP? You can see the verdict, and now I will concentrate more on Uttar Pradesh. I will now make inroads in West Bengal, Assam and everywhere, without any hesitation,” Owaisi told.
