UP Election 2022 | Chunav Manch: Our party does not motivate the youth into violence, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said on Saturday. Speaking at India TV's election conclave 'Chunav Manch' in Lucknow, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief asserted that the party motivates people to fight for their democratic rights.
