Vote for me or don’t come to me for any work: BJP leader Maneka Gandhi to Muslims

Union Minister and BJP leader Maneka Gandhi has landed herself in controversy after telling Muslim community that if they will not for her they will suffer. Maneka Gandhi, who is contesting the Lok Sabha election 2019 from Uttar Pradesh’s Sultanpur, can be heard telling the Muslim community in her constituency in a video, that if they fail to vote for her, their requests may not be responded to.

“I have already won this election, now it is for you to decide,” the BJP leader can be heard saying in the video on Thursday. The public meeting took place in Sultanpur’s Turabkhani. The video of the meeting has gone viral on social media.

“This is important. I am winning. I am winning because of the support and love of people. But if my victory is without Muslims, I won’t feel that good. Then, dil khatta ho jayega. Then when a Muslim comes to me for work, I think let it be, how does it matter. It’s all give and take, isn’t it? We aren’t all sons of Mahatma Gandhi, are we? It’s not that we keep on giving and then lose in the election. This victory will happen with or without you. And you have to spread the word on this,” Maneka tells the gathering, the video shows.

“I have already won the elections, but you will need me. This is your chance to lay the foundation. When the election comes and this booth throws up 100 votes or 50 votes, and then you come to me for work we will see… I don’t see any divide, I see only pain, sadness and love. So it is up to you…” she adds.

Maneka Gandhi is contesting the 2019 General Elections from Sultanpur. She is currently the MP from Pilibhit, from where her son Varun Gandhi is contesting this time after shifting from Sultanpur.
