The AIMIM of Asaduddin Owaisi has played a spoilsport for the RJD-Congress alliance in the Seemanchal area, thus making the highway to energy a distant dream for Lalu’s son Tejashwi Yadav. The Seemanchal area contains 4 districts Purnia, Katihar, Kishanganj, and Araria. It accounts for 24 meeting seats and holds the important thing to energy. Seemanchal is taken into account probably the most backward areas in the state. It has a sizeable Muslim inhabitants and is taken into account an RJD-Congress stronghold. But this election, the AIMIM ended up dividing the Muslims votes and hurting the prospects of RJD and benefiting the BJP.
Of the 24 seats in Seemanchal, Owiasi’s social gathering contested 14 seats. Owaisi’s AIMIM, a constituent of the Grand Democratic Secular Front (GDSF) comprising RLSP of Upendra Kushwaha, Mayawati’s BSP, and Devendra Yadav’s SJDD, fielded candidates, the place Muslims can change the fortunes of a celebration. Although the alliance projected Kushwaha as its CM candidate, barring the AIMIM, not a single social gathering gained something this election.
The AIMIM has gained fie seats — Amour (Akhtarul Iman), Kochadhamam (Muhammed Izhar Asfi), Jokihat (Shahnawaz Alam), Baisi (Syed Ruknuddin), and Bahadurgunj (Azhar Nayeemi).

According to the ECI knowledge, Kishanganj has practically 70% Muslim voters, adopted by Araria with 45%. Katihar and Purnia have 40% and 30% Muslim voters, respectively.
Owaisi addressed a number of rallies in the area and raised the problems of CAA-NRC, migrants, and Seemanchal’s neglect by the successive governments. He earned the religion of Muslim voters, whereas the RJD and Congress leaders shunned commenting on the matters that the BJP in previous used to nook the opposition.
In two of the 5 seats, the AIMIM secured greater than 50% of votes. In Amour meeting seat of Purnia district, the Congress secured simply 11.14% votes in opposition to AIMIM’s 56.55% votes. The JD(U) pocketed 23.09% votes. In Kochadhaman of Kishanganj as nicely, the AIMIM secured 56.57% votes, the RJD acquired simply 7.4% votes. The JDU secured 28.77% votes.

It is clear that Muslims in Seemahcal have proven religion in AIMIM than reposing in the RJD-Congress. Owaisi is usually referred to as the vote cutter and opposition accuses him of benefiting the BJP, however AIMIM chief in his rallies attacked the RJD-Congress and referred to as himself “different” from them. This led to the huge division of votes and thus the grand alliance confronted the warmth.
