Owaisi demands reservation for Muslims in Nagpur, MIM to use 'Jai Bheem, Jai Meem' slogan for Dalit-Muslim unity
Incidentally, Nagpur is the city that also houses the headquarters of the Hindu organisation, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
Owaisi arrived in Nagpur despite stiff opposition from different groups. In his address, he focused on reservation for Muslims.
Talking about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's term 'sabka sath, sabka vikas', he said that PM should ask BJP CM in Maharashtra to ensure reservation for minorities.
The MIM supremo has been trying to bring Dalits and Muslims together. The slogan, 'Jai Bheem, Jai Meem', aims at bringing the two communities close. MIM had contested the recently Assembly election and had won two seats.
More than 25% population of Maharashtra belongs to Dalits and Muslims. Dalits earlier voted for Congress and RPI. BSP has also failed to emerge in the state till now. Now Hyderabad-based AIMIM is eying this vote bank. The Shiv Sena and the BJP had both opposed the plan of the AIMIM to hold the rally.
