Maneka Gandhi issues veiled threat to Sultanpur Muslims, says ‘vote for me, else don’t come to me for anything’
Union minister Maneka Gandhi, who is contesting from Uttar Pradesh’s Sultanpur Lok Sabha seat in the general election, on Thursday, issued a veiled threat to the Muslim voters of her constituency saying if the members of the community don’t vote for her, she may not be inclined to solve their issues as their representative in Parliament.
While addressing a gathering of Muslims in Sultanpur’s Turabkhani area, the BJP leader said, “I am winning. I am winning because of the love and support of people. But if my victory is without Muslims, I won’t feel that good. If the Muslims comes to me for work after that, I’ll think let it be, how does it matter. It’s all about give and take, isn’t it? It’s not that we keep on giving and then lose the election. I will win with or without you.”
She further said, “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 divides, I see only pain, sadness and love. So, it is up to you.”
