Asaduddin Owaisi, president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), discussed the present Indian political environment and his thoughts on the freshly established Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Owaisi cited a perceived “political vacuum” in the country and encouraged Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) to take the lead in building a third front with other political groups. He feels that if KCR begins such an alliance, this void can be filled.
He further claimed that he is not concerned about not being called to join the INDIA coalition, noting that several other significant leaders and parties, like Mayawati and parties from the Northeast and Maharashtra, have not been invited.
Concerning reservation, Owaisi voiced his optimism that the government will present a measure to exceed the 50 percent reservation ceiling during the upcoming five-day extraordinary session of Parliament. He claimed that the restriction should be raised because Other Backward Communities (OBCs) receive just 27% reservation but make up 80% of society.
The special session of Parliament will kick out with a discussion about Parliament’s 75-year journey, marking the first meeting of the Samvidhan Sabha on December 9, 1946.
This declaration comes as several opposition parties in India build alliances to confront the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance in the 2024 elections, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking a third term.
