All India Mahila Empowerment Party’s (MEP) President Dr. Nowhera Shaikh on Friday set aside the rumour mills about her party seeking political alliance and said that MEP does not want to go into any kind of alliance. She said the party wants to contest elections on its own.
Dr. Shaikh also said that her party is confident of winning over 150 seats, in its maiden elections.
Addressing a press conference at the city’s Leela Palace, the business women turned politician said that there are a lot of offers from big political parties seeking a poll alliance with MEP, but she has declined all such offers.
She said that “the Karnataka elections will be a warm-up. We intend to contest all the Lok Sabha seats and make a mark”.
Dr. Shaikh also said that MEP is not just a party for Muslims, but for everyone, irrespective of their caste and creed. She said the party is contesting elections to create an impact in people’s lives, and promised interest-free loans for taxi drivers and farmers of the state if they come to power.
MEP also announced that the party is holding a public rally at Palace Ground Gate No: 5 in Bengaluru on 10th March 2018 at 1 PM.
