MIM has got embolden with the win in Maharastra and rightly so, since all the so called secular party are adept in cosmetic politics to woo the Muslims and forgetting them as soon as the ballot boxes are 'sealed'. Though Owaissi claims to be a secuclar party, his rabid Islamic speeches have struck a chord that he is an independent voice for the Muslims and he will not take the diktats of the so called secular parties. He has a good chance to make a dent in UP and WB, but that will also polarise the votes, especially in UP. Mayawati and Mulayam will be up a gum tree since Owassi has cleverly roped in the Dalits in his agenda. In WB, he will make a beginning along the border belt that has a huge Muslim population that has settled as a vote bank during the Left regime and now, under the TMC. And the Congress? They have already sung their swan song and with MIM around, they can hammer the last nail in their coffin.
