Hyderabad: MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi came down heavily on Union Minister for Women & Child Development Maneka Gandhi, for threatening Muslims in Sultanpur in Uttar Pradesh to vote for her, failing which she would not consider their requests for jobs.

She said this while addressing a public meeting. After the video went viral, Owaisi tweeted: "I say Muslims should get a FAIR DEAL in this country, that they should be treated as human beings & I am called 'Bhadkhau Bhaijaan.'" "@Manekagandhibjp, please understand that a vote is not feudal 'salami'.

An MP cannot refuse a constituent on their faith or who they voted for," he added. It may be mentioned that addressing a gathering, Maneka Gandhi had said: "I am going to win with the help of people.

But if I win without the support of Muslims, then I won't like it much. Because you feel bad. And then when Muslims come for jobs, I will say leave it, it makes no difference."
