Months earlier than the West Bengal meeting elections, Pirzada of Furfura Sharif Abbas Siddiqui on Thursday floated a brand new political celebration ‘Indian Secular Front’. His brother Nausad Siddiqui would be the chairman of the celebration whereas Simul Soren was named its president.
“We have announced our party today. We will now sit for talks with other parties like AIMIM and then decide on how many seats we will field candidates. At present, we are considering all 294 seats,” mentioned Abbas Siddiqui.
This comes weeks after AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owasi held a two-hour-long assembly with Siddiqui and said that his celebration is able to combat polls in Bengal underneath his management.
One of the descendants of the late Pir Abu Baqar Siddiqui of Furfura Sharif, Abbas Siddiqui mentioned that he needs to be a king maker and won’t contest polls. “I want to be the king maker. I will not contest polls. But will do everything possible for the party. We will work for the betterment of Muslims, Dalits and poor people. Our party is for all,” mentioned Siddiqui.
Furfura Sharif is the second most outstanding ‘Mazar’ within the nation after Ajmer Sharif in Rajasthan.
According to political observers, his faction might emerge as a key think about division of Bengali talking Muslim votes which, thus far, was with TMC in South Bengal and with Congress in elements of North Bengal. “Years of Congress rule, then that of CPM and then Trinamool Congress in Bengal did nothing for the Muslims or the poor people,” added Siddiqui.
“It was Trinamool Congress which allowed BJP to get into Bengal and win 18 Lok Sabha seats. I have a constitutional right to announce a political party,” mentioned Siddiqui.
