Owaisi criticises BJP manifesto and govt policies


HYDERABAD (Telangana): AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has said here that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be remembered for the incidents of mob lynching which took place during his tenure.

“The legacy of Prime Minister Modi is mob lynching incidents, which are more in numbers so far as his regime is concerned. He will be remembered for mob lynching,” Owaisi said while speaking to reporters at a press conference.

Owaisi also criticised Prime Minister Modi for his party’s stand on Article 370.”BJP says that they will quash Article 370, but how many Kashmiri Pandits have been rehabilitated by them? They got five years and 280 MPs and 320 NDA MPs. How long will they keep deceiving the people on Article 370,” he asked.

The AIMIM chief also attacked BJP-led government on Ayodhya land dispute after the BJP included this in its party manifesto.

“From the time Babri Masjid got martyred, neither Uttar Pradesh government nor the Central government became a party to it. Petitioners were fighting but the government never became a part of it.

“Telangana government passed a resolution in Assembly which was sent to the Indian government. This is intellectual dishonesty of the Modi government that they rejected the resolution,” he said.

“We will continue our struggle for 12 per cent reservation. This reservation is not on the religious grounds but there is empirical data about social and educational backwardness as mentioned in the report of Sudhir Committee report. The report says that 83 per cent of people in Telangana is socially and educationally backwards,” he said.  

Owaisi, while extending support to SP-BSP-RLD alliance in Uttar Pradesh, said that AIMIM will not field any candidate for the Lok Sabha elections there. “In Uttar Pradesh, we will not field any candidate. In Bihar, our candidate is contesting in Kishanganj seat,” he said. (ANI)
