Asaduddin Owaisi, the president of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) party dismissed the allegations that he was secretly helping BJP win the Bihar assembly election by deciding to fight elections from Muslim dominated Seemanchal region of the state.
He said: "They (grand alliance) have not done justice or development and their track record clearly shows that the real prosperity or justice has not been done."
"They are fully drunk in arrogance and they don't want MIM to participate," Owaisi told PTI as he attacked the grand alliance of JDU, RJD and Congress.
Claiming that the All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen is serious about winning assembly seats the region, Mr Owaisi said: "We have decided to limit ourselves only to Seemanchal area and that too we are yet to take a decision on how many seats of 24 (in the region) we are going to contest."
"In constituencies where the AIMIM is not contesting, the party has requested the people of Bihar to defeat BJP and to vote for any secular candidate or secular combination," he added.
AIMIM's stand, he said, is very clear that it wants to contest on the plank of development and justice for Seemanchal region.
