RSS has hijacked Modi's development agenda: AIMPLB members

Representatives of All India Muslim Personal Law Board today alleged here that the agenda of development on which Narendra Modi had contested election has been "left behind".

They also accused RSS and other Hindu outfits of trying to force their agenda on Muslims. However, they said that it was not the right time for the board to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"The issue of meeting with the Prime Minister is not a part of the agenda today. The board will take a decision on it but I feel that its not the right time to meet him. There is no need as of now and when a need arises, a meeting might take place accordingly," Kamal Faruqui, the board member said.

"We are not desperate that the Board should have a meeting with Modi and this is also not an issue of debate now," he said. Faruqui told PTI that "it appeared that the Prime Minister wants to say something but is not able to express."

"The correct time for meeting with the prime minister has not come yet. Let the situation deteriorate in the country after which people will shout that they did not vote for (carrying out the RSS agenda)," he said.

The former Chairman of Delhi Minorities Commission said that the agenda of development on which Modi contested election has left behind.

"We voted for development but this agenda has been left behind and RSS has hijacked it. The organisation is in a hurry to complete its agenda of 100 years in a short span of time. Those who are not experienced fall in the race and we are hopeful that they will also meet with the same fate," he said.

Khalid Rasheed Farangi Mahli, Imam-e-Eidgah Lucknow, said that the board has not taken any stand on whether to meet the Prime Minister or not.

"It was not in the core agenda today and there is no official stand of the board yet but I feel that if there is no communication between both the sides, then how things will be solved and sorted out?" he questioned.
