Karnataka Congress Leader Slams KPCC Prez, Hints at Quitting Party

New Delhi, May 21 (TIWN): Following the Congress’ low score in the exit polls, senior Congress leader Roshan Baig on Monday, 20 May, dropped hints of quitting the party and appealed to Muslims to compromise with the situation if NDA returns to power.

"Well, if NDA is coming back to power, I humbly appeal to Muslim brothers to learn to compromise with the situation," he told a section of media here.

‘Muslims Should Join Hands With BJP’

Asked if that means Muslims should join hands with BJP, Baig said if need arises, they must as the Congress had given just one ticket to a Muslim leader in Karnataka.

"“If needs be, (Muslims) must join hands. We must not remain loyal to one party. What happened to Muslims in Karnataka? The Congress gave just one seat,”" - Roshan Baig

If Need Be, Will Leave Congress: Baig

Asked if he will take a decision to quit the Congress in coming days, Baig said if need be, he would.

"If need be, I will do it because we (Muslims) cannot remain in a party with disgrace. We live our lives with grace and dignity. Where we will not get respect, we will not want to remain there. If someone makes us sit with love and affection, we will sit with them," he said.
