Due to the emergence of the Third Front and failure of the Congress-NCP Government in Maharashtra to resolve major public issues and the policy of injustice has led Advisory Council of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Maharashtra to pull out its earlier decision of party-wise support in elections, said Mohammed Aslam Ghazi, spokesperson, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Maharashtra.

“The Maharashtra Govt. has failed to control suicide of farmers and the communal violence. It (the ruling alliance) did not offer proportionate representation to minorities specially Muslims in this Assembly Election. Despite its earlier promises it did not implement the findings of Sri Krishna Commission. The government also paved the way to remove the MCOCA on the Malegaon blast accused Sadhvi Pragya Singh and files an affidavit against the CBI inquiry of Hari Masjid firing case in the Supreme Court,” Ghazi said.

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Maharashtra will assess the situation of every constituency, will discuss it with the local people and will support the Strong Secular Candidate , who held high moral values and who will be in agreement with the Peoples’ manifesto released by the Jamaat and try to implement it, he said while announcing the first list of Jamaat supported candidates.
