MIM to contest outside Andhra Pradesh too: Akbaruddin Owaisi This will be great news for Modi and BJP. I really hope they do what they plan. All the BJP needs to win in UP is a split of the Muslim votes that are now with Mulayam. Muslims are 17% of voters and even if MIM gets 3%, SP will get hammerred. On the other hand, BJP does not get Muslim votes and has nothing to lose. The same theory can be extended to all states where Muslim votes are played by politicians. This apart a semi lunatic like Owaisi can only bring more fringe Hindu votes to BJP. The stink in the Indian political shithole just got nastier.
