After giving a ticket to a Jinnah backer, congress party is now defending its move. Maskoor Ahmad Usmani, congress says, was never a Jinnah supporter and this is a blatant lie. In fact, they say, he wrote a letter to the PM back in May, to get Jinnah’s picture removed from Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) while he was a student there.
Maskoor Ahmad Usmani, who was the former students union chief, is also known to openly support Umar Khalid.
Congress has further stated that BJP is trying to divert the minds of people from important issues by falsely talking about the alleged ‘tukde-backer’.
