On this occasion, Shakir Haq Nellyadi said there was a need of new political movement in India to uphold the country’s sovereignty and its values. “The people in India have lost trust on so called secular parties. The country has become a safe haven for corporate houses and billionaires while areas like education and healthcare have been losing important,” he said adding, media giants also chose to be servants of corporate sector.

Shakir opined that the recent election results in India have proved that the so-called seculars have made no effort to counter the Modi wave and went on to claim that elections in India are mere a match fixing game by political parties and Corporate giants.
