RJD MP Taslimuddin on Tuesday created a flutter within his party by saying that even the BJP would get Muslim votes in the Seemanchal region of Araria, Purnia, Katihar and Kishanganj with 24 assembly seats. The RJD later disowned the MP’s statement calling it “unwarranted before such an important election”.

Taslimuddin said in Delhi: “The BJP stands a good chance in some Seemanchal seats like Amur and Baisi and might get some Muslim votes as well.”

The former Union minister said the NCP and the Samajwadi Party’s exit from the grand alliance and the likelihood of Asaduddin Owaisi’s party contesting from this region might affect the grand alliance’s chances.

      RJD MP Taslimuddin understands Politics and right in saying that BJP will get Muslim Votes,. I never think that Muslims are not Intelligent enough to see the Facts behind the Corrupt Alliance of LALLU NITISH SONIA > SCAMGRESS ....................................... But Taslimuddin will be stamped by Sicklurs as Facist and RSS Agent ,,
