Hyderabad: Linking the holy month of Ramzan to the elections is an unnecessary controversy, All India Majlis-e-Ittihadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi stated in the city after the Trinamul Congress had stated that the lengthy schedule will be arduous for those observing fasting.

Ramzan starts around May 5 depending on the sighting of the moon, and polling for the seven-phase countrywide elections starts on April 11 and ends on May 19.

 

Mr Owaisi said, “What is the link between Ramzan and elections? What do those people who are talking about Ramzan know about the holy month? Fasting Muslims go to office, work and pray during the month of Ramzan.

“They will come out in big numbers to vote and there will be an increase in the numbers. The women are free as there is not much work. Hukumat ke galat kaam kiye hai usko daba ke vote daleye," To punish the government for its wrong deeds, vote with enthusiasm, he said.

The country has to complete the process of elections and it has to be carried out on schedule, Mr Owaisi said.

"Ramzan ayega aur election bhi hoga. Mera mann na hai ke Ramzan mein jo ruhani jazba hota hai woh zyada hota hai. Us din polling percentage badkar hoga. Elections ko kyun Ramzan se jod rahe hai?" translate In Telangana and Andhra Pradesh polliing will be held on April 11.
