Mumbai Polls

By A Staff Writer

The poll outcome in Mumbai shows that Muslims voted for Congress in a big way. The developments in Gujarat had played major role in influencing voting by Muslims in Mumbai.

The only issue before the Muslims was Gujarat. They were angry with the Vajpayee government for not coming to the rescue of their community Said Saeed Khan of Muslim youth of India. Four constituencies—South Mumbai, North-West, North-East and South Central—have a sizeable Muslim population. And in these areas, the Muslim turnout on poll day was impressive. “In Umerkhadi, Trombay, Bandra, Kurla and other Muslim-dominated areas, Muslims had voted enmasse for the Congress since they wanted to defeat BJP at any cost. They also did not allow their votes to be divided by other parties” said Saeed Khan. “The pogrom against Muslims in Gujarat had a deep impact on city Muslims who had themselves suffered during the riots of January 1993 in the post-Babri phase. What upset the Muslims was that BJP leaders like Narendra Modi showed no remorse for the violence in Gujarat and instead sought to justify it. Congressman Arif Naseem Khan, minister of state for civil supplies, said there was a “total swing” of Muslims votes in favour of Congress. “Muslims realised that secularism was safe in the country only in the hands of Congress and its president Sonia Gandhi. They voted positively for the Congress. This pattern will be repeated during the assembly elections as well,” he stated. The results also show that Muslims rejected the Samajwadi Party, which had projected itself as a champion of Muslim interests. Its nominees, Amin Solkar and T.K. Choudhary in Mumbai south and Mumbai south central respectively, performed miserably and lost deposit.
