Did Amit Shah, Owaisi have a secret deal during Bihar polls?

New Delhi/Nagpur:
 The 2015 Bihar Assembly Elections witnessed three major parties JD(U), RJD andCongress coming together to form a ‘grand alliance’ for taking on BJP. On the other hand BJP also joined hands with several local parties including that of former chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi.

However, a letter written by former Gujarat BJP MLA Yatin Oza to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reveals that there was another ‘secret’ alliance which took place after a meeting between AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and BJP president Amit Shah at the latter’s residence.

As first reported by JantaKaReporter, Oza has decided to join AAP and he might be formally inducted into the party on Thursday. It also says that he had met Kejriwal during his two-day visit to the state.

According to the letter, it was mutually decided that Owaisi’s AIMIM would field candidates in Bihar’s Muslim dominated areas. “It was also decided that Shri Owaisi will vomit poisonous communal speech the script of which shall be written by Shri Amit Shah, which may have potentiality to result into communal divide in the society,” stated Oza in the letter.
