Trouble in mahagathbandhan? Azam Khan upset with Mamata’s ‘United India’ rally, says it failed to represent Muslim interest

He even slammed the Opposition leaders for sticking to political rhetorics instead of talking about issues that may help the nation progress. 

Samajwadi Party’s senior leader Amaz Khan is not too happy with Mamata’s United Opposition rally which took place on Saturday in Kolkata. According to reports, Azam Khan felt that while Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav attended the rally, the rally failed to adequately represent the interests of the minority.

According to Khan, since there was only one Muslim leader from Kashmir and one from Assam, the representation of Muslims, the second largest religious population, was “merely namesake”. He even slammed the Opposition leaders for sticking to political rhetorics instead of talking about issues that may help the nation progress.

He further said that Muslims should also get the benefit of 10% reservation for economically weaker section.
