Patna: Alleging a secret deal between the two leaders, the Janata Dal (United) on Friday demanded to know the agenda of the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi recently.
“I want Prime Minister Modi and MIM chief Owaisi to tell the nation about the secret of their meeting. Was the meeting focused at defeating the 'Mahagathbandhan' in Bihar or was it focused to uplift the minorities in the state?” JD (U) leader KC Tyagi was quoted as saying by ANI.
The AIMIM chief had reportedly met PM Modi ahead of the announcement of dates for the assembly elections in Bhar by the Election Commission.
However, BJP had strongly refuted the claims made by Bihar's ruling JD(U).
AIMIM chief Owaisi earlier announced that his party would contest the upcoming Bihar Assembly polls, saying his party would contest the polls in the Seemanchal region in Bihar.
The 243-member Bihar Assembly comes to an end on November 29. The polls in the state will begin on October 12 and end on November 5.
