Hitting back at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday said the former is less concerned about his state and is trying to spread hatred in Telangana ahead of assembly elections.
Speaking at a rally in Malakpet, Owaisi said, "BJP’s aim is 'Hindu-Muslim' divide. Amit Shah comes to various events and only speaks about Asaduddin Owaisi and AIMIM as he does not have anything else to say. Amit Shah, please tell what have you done in India in the last four and a half years? Is there something that you wanted to do, but could not?"
He added, "Their Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister has come to Hyderabad. He is saying that if BJP will form the government in Telangana then they will throw AsaduddinOwaisi out like Nizam. I want to ask him does this nation only belong to you and not me? Will they throw us out of this country if we speak against BJP, Narendra Modi, criticise his politics and talk against Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh?"
Owaisi said, "You are zero in history and don't know dates. If you can't read then ask somebody who can. If you were educated, then you would have known that Nizam didn't leave Hyderabad. When India fought against China, then he was the one who sold his gold."
Owaisi's statement came after Yogi Adityanath earlier on Sunday said that if the BJP comes to power in Telangana, then Owaisi will have to flee from the state as Nizam left Hyderabad.
Addressing an election rally at Tandur, Vikarabad in Telangana, Adityanath said, "If BJP comes to power in Telangana, I assure you Owaisi will have to flee from Telangana the same way as Nizam was forced to flee from Hyderabad. BJP will give security to all but will not allow anyone to create anarchy."
