All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday, just after a day of Lok Sabha Election Results said that BJP will now have to work on the promises they made. He says that the mandate to BJP in Lok Sabha Elections is huge and the electorate will seek the answer from them on the basis of their work.

"This time BJP will have to work on their promises because of the massive mandate given by the people. Now the electorate will answer questions from them," Owaisi told ANI.

When he was asked about the relevance of regional parties in the Lok Sabha elections, Owaisi said, "BJP's onslaught was not stopped by Congress. So there is more importance of regional parties now. Jagan Mohan Reddy's party had won massively in Andhra Pradesh, which is also a regional party. Wherever there was Congress, BJP had claimed victory."

"BJP's strong point is nationalism, Hindu identity and the use of social media which the party had used in the general elections," he told ANI. Owaisi who is the leader of AIMM revealed the party's agenda and said, "Expanding all over India is our agenda now. At first, we want to spread to West Bengal, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh."

Asauddin Owaisi won the Hyderabad constituency by defeating BJP Dr Bhagavnath Rao by a margin of 2,82,186 votes.
