You allow BJP to hold public rallies. Congress and Left hold rallies. But not AIMIM. Why?’ Owaisi questioned. He also urged the election commission to transfer all officials in the area once the code of conduct comes into place as free and fair elections cannot be held till those officers are still in power in those regions.
