Congress leaders seen openly demanding tickets for Muslims because their population is growing

'Not a single constituency where there is no Muslim vote,' ex-Congress MLAs write to Rahul Gandhi demanding a ticket for the Lok Sabha elections.

In a shocking video which has surfaced, four Congress leaders are seen ‘strategising’ and demanding a ticket for Muslim candidates in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections because of the growing Muslim population in the national capital.

In the above video, four senior Muslim leaders of Congress can be heard discussing the total Muslim population in Delhi and how much of the votes Muslims could contribute. Mentioning that since the figure of Muslim vote could be at around 20-22 lakhs, the Congress leaders add that at least one Muslim candidate should be fielded for the Lok Sabha elections by Congress.

Matin Ahmed: “Muslim vote hai kitna?” (How much is Muslim vote?)

Hasan Ahmed: “Muslim vote mere khayal se 18-20% hoga” (Muslim vote must be 18-20%)

Shoaib Iqbal: “Total jo hai, main aapko bataunga. Muslim population 40 lakh hai. Vote 20 lakh hoga.” (I’ll tell you total population. Total Muslim population is 40 lakh, of which 20 lakh must be voters.)

Hasan Ahmed: “20-22 lakh kam thodi hi hai? Ek seat to aise hi ho gayi. Baat yeh hai ki pehle outer Delhi mein Musalman vote nahin tha. Ek constituency aisi nahin hai jisme Muslim vote nahin hai. Aap outer Delhi mein bhi jaa ke dekhiye, beshumar Musalman kahan kahan se aa ke base hai. Pata hi nahin laga. (20-22 lakh is not less. We should get at least one seat. Earlier there were hardly any Muslims in outer Delhi. Now you go and see. So many Muslims have come and settled there.)

They even wrote a letter to the party president Rahul Gandhi in which they demand at least one ticket be given to them because of the support from Muslim voters.

Congress leaders write to Rahul Gandhi demanding at least one seat for them to contest on.

In the letter addressed to Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Shoaib Iqbal, Matin Ahmed, Haroon Yusuf, Hasan Ahmed and Asif Mohammed Khan, all former MLAs, write that “keeping in view large numbers of Muslim voters and the contribution of these 5 senior Muslim leaders and their trackrecord of winning elections” at least one ticket must be given to either of the five mentioned above.
