NEW DELHI: As per reports, Asaduddin Owaisi is looking forward to the assembly elections of Tamil Nadu, to be held in the next summer, after the success of AIMIM in Bihar assembly elections. The party, which had locked 5 seats in Bihar polls, may contest on not less than 25 seats in Tamil Nadu polls. Owaisi is also likely to get Kamal Haasan on board, who failed to make a mark in the 2019 General Elections.
Apparently, Owaisi will hold meetings in Hyderabad with AIMIM state office bearers. He is likely to hold conferences in Chennai and Trichy in January to finalise the plans for the upcoming elections. Kamal Hassan also said on Monday that his party will contest in the upcoming State elections. He, however, stated, “I will announce later about the constituency from which I will be contesting.”
Earlier, AIMIM chief had said that his party would contest elections in West Bengal too. He said, “AIMIM’s victory in Bihar is an answer to those who think AIMIM should not contest elections in other states. “This election result is a message for everyone who thinks that AIMIM should not contest in elections. Are we NGOs that we will only hold seminars and present papers? We are a political party and we will contest in all elections,” Owaisi added.
