Cash and Congress goes hand in hand and history is an evidence for this. Whenever the Congress party feels that it is in a position of losing an election, it starts to unleash its money power. Days ago the Congress workers themselves alleged that the Congress party led by Rahul Gandhi and Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan is allotting tickets to only those who are ready to shell out money.
Condemning this incident, the Congress party workers themselves protested outside the residence of Rahul Gandhi in Delhi. Now another such incident has taken place where the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi said that the Congress party offered him Rs 25 lakh to cancel his public rallies in Telangana’s Nirmal town. This he revealed in an election rally.
Revealing how the Congress Congress party is using its money power, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said “Today when this rally was happening, Congress attempted to buy Asaduddin Owaisi. This Maheshwar (Maheshwar Reddy) calls and tells a minister to stop Owaisi and I will give 25 lakh rupees in the party fund. I have the recording. This Congressman will buy me in Rs 25 lakh?! They think we are for sale for Rs 25 lakh. Suddenly, Chandrababu Naidu has jumped into the playing field as Rahul Gandhi thought he can’t take on Asaduddin Owaisi alone, so he joined hands with Naidu. Politics is a strange thing. Dono me achanak nikah hogaya (Both has got together all of a sudden) . They suddenly formed the alliance. Chandrababu Naidu is talking about saving the nation. We will free Telangana from both BJP and Congress”.
It should be noted that AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi had slammed Rahul Gandhi on several instances. This is interesting as both the parties are eyeing on the Muslim vote banks.
