A day after polling for the 7-phase elections ended in Uttar Pradesh, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday rejected the accusations that he contested the UP elections to divide secular votes and pave way for the Bhartiya Janata Party's win.

Owaisi also vehementally rejected the claims that the AIMIM is responsible for the defeat of the Congress in election after election.

"The Congress blames us for splitting the Muslim vote. But, the reality is that the Hindu vote of the Congress has moved over to the BJP.", Owaisi said according to First Post.

"I made life hell for secular parties. Congress leaders were cursing me because without any effort, I could mobilise up to 5,000 people for each one of my public meetings. What is important is that 90 percent of that crowd was youth in the age group of 18 to 25,'' Owaisi said.

Owaisi on many occasions in the past has also pointed out that his party never contested in Odisha, Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi, Haryana where too the Congress suffered humiliating losses.

"The Congress bosses think that the AIMIM is just a Hyderabad party that should not dare spread its wings beyond the city.

"This is a feudal mindset,'' he pointed out.

"If I do not try now in the prime of my life, when will I,'' asks the 47-year-old politician, happy with the response that he has managed to generate

A day later while addressing a rally in Latur, Maharashtra, Asaduddin Owaisi gave a unity call and urged Muslims and other marginalised sections to unite for their rights and to uphold the country's constitution.

"The reason why the marginalised are suffering in India is because they are not united. The political parties are taking advantage of this and are ruling the country", he said.

He also attacked the BJP and Congress for their brand of politics which keeps the country divided and pave way for their rule.

"One party talks of "Secularism" and there is another party which boasts of "Hindu Rashtra". All of them are actually enemies of the country's composit culture.

"But, I will never allow India to become a Hindu state", Owaisi said in his speech at Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar Town Hall Ground in Latur.
