Vote for MBT to end MIM’s mafia-raj in Old City: Khayam Khan Wed, 23 Apr 2014 11:08:01 +0000

Hyderabad, April 23 : MBT President and candidate from Chandrayangutta Assembly constituency Dr Khayam Khan has appealed to the people to vote for him to put an end to the water mafia being run by MIM leaders.

Addressing a massive public meetings at Riyasat Nagar and Sai Baba Nagar, Dr Khayam Khan said that organised mafia has spread its deadly tentacles in almost all the areas of Old City, especially the Chandrayangutta constituency. The mafia is selling water at Rs 10 per barrel. On an average, each family is forced to buy two barrels of water on daily basis. Therefore, the poor families are spending Rs 600 per month. According to rough estimate, the mafia is selling nearly 10,000 barrels of water in Chandrayangutta and illegally earning Rs 1 lakh per day. At this rate, the poor residents of Chandrayangutta are forced to shell out nearly Rs 30 lakh a month.

Dr Khayam Khan said that the water mafia is operating under the political patronage of MIM leaders including sitting MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi. There are dozens of localities like Mohammad Nagar, Ismail Nagar or Ghouse Nagar where residents are forced to buy water for their daily needs.

The MBT President said that water reservoirs were constructed for the people of Chandrayangutta constituency more than 15 years ago. However, those reservoirs were not connected to the pipelines by depriving the local residents their due share of water. This was deliberate done to allow the mafia to flourish in the area. Through the illegal sale of water, the MIM-backed mafia earned lakhs of rupees in the last 15 years.

Dr Khayam Khan also said that residents were also denied proper sewerage facility. The old and thin pipelines often lead to overflowing and chocking of drainage lines. The MIM leaders collect money from the local residents to clean those lines. He said that the poor residents of old city, especially the Chandrayangutta constituency, are forced to pay for the basic services which they are entitled to get for free. He also slammed the MIM for regular shut down of electricity, low voltage and faulty metres in the Old City.

He appealed to the voters to vote for the “Television”, MBT’s symbol, to put an end to this MIM-led mafia-raj in the Old City.  INN

MIM has proved its secularism: Asad Owaisi Mon, 14 Apr 2014 12:26:55 +0000

Hyderabad, April 14 : Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday claimed that his party has proved its secular credentials by nominating many non-Muslim candidates in the ensuing elections.

Addressing the party workers after inaugurating MIM’s election office at Ishrat Mahal near Moghalpura, Asaduddin Owaisi said that the claims of all political parties of being secular look hollow as they displayed their communal approach in allocation of tickets. However, the MIM has proved its secularism by giving party tickets to candidates belonging to all sections of the society.

The MIM chief asked the party cadre to be vigilant and active throughout the campaign and do not take the elections lightly due to absence of any strong opponent. He said an awareness should be created among people to increase the polling percentage. He also advised the MIM legislators to stay in touch with the local leaders and cadre to ensure victory in the ensuing elections.

Asaduddin Owaisi said that the MIM has always believed in performance and not promises. Therefore, through hard work and service to the people, the MIM hopes to win the elections, he said.

MIM MLAs Akbaruddin Owaisi, Syed Ahmed Pasha Quadri, Mohammad Maozam Khan, Mumtaz Ahmed Khan and other senior leaders were also present.  INN

Nizam was a secular ruler: Akbar Owaisi Mon, 20 Jan 2014 12:49:40 +0000

Hyderabad, Jan 20 : MIM floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi on Monday slammed the Seemandhra leaders for targeting Mir Osman Ali Khan, the last Nizam of Hyderabad, during the debate on State Reorganisation Bill.

During his 70-minute yet-to-be-concluded speech, Akbar Owaisi strongly condemned the criticism against the Nizam which triggered protests by the Seemandhra legislators from TDP and also the BJP MLAs. At one state the Seemandhra MLAs rushed to podium of Deputy Speaker Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka against Akbar Owaisi’s remarks.

Participating in the discussion on Telangana Bill in the State Legislative Assembly, Akbar Owaisi described the Congress party as a divided House. He said that the Congress party could not convince its own MLAs on the Telangana issue and introduced the Bill. He said both the Leader of the House N Kiran Kumar Reddy and Opposition Leader N Chandrababu Naidu were supporting those who are opposing the division of the State and both have lost control over their Telangana MLAs.

Akbar Owaisi said that instead of speaking about the Telangana Bill, the Seemandhra leaders were targeting Nizam. He said that the Seemandhra MLAs need to learn the history and the real conditions that prevailed before the merger of Hyderabad with the Indian union. The Assembly resolution passed on November 25, 1955 to merge Hyderabad State with Andhra also needs to be studied. He said that the Seemandhra leaders could not ignore the reality. He said that the demand for Telangana gained prominence due to the injustices done to the region in the fields of employment, energy and other sectors and not because of atrocities of Nizam as being alleged.

The MIM leader said that the then Prime Minister Pandit Nehru described Hyderabad State as mini-India for several obvious factors. He said the Nizam equally promoted six languages – Urdu, Telugu, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi and Persian and gave funds. He asked Seemandhra leaders to state when the Begumpet Airport was constructed. He said Madras got power almost 17 years after Hyderabad was electrified. The Hyderabad Civil Services was started in 1913 and several other projects were in place much before Hyderabad was merged with Indian Union.

Akbar Owaisi said that Sarojini Naidu finished her higher studies with the scholarship given by Nizam. Hussainsagar Power Project was started by the Nizam which was later sold away by NTR for just Rs 6 crore.

The then Central Government led by Pandit Nehru was aware of Nizam’s contribution and calibre and therefore, he was made the Raj Pramukh. In 1962 war with China, Mir Osman Ali had donated two lorries load of gold coins which were then worth Rs 9 crore as his personal contribution. He donated Rs 10 lakh for Banaras Hindu University and also gave 55 acres of land to Dr BR Ambedkar for setting up educational institutions. He said in 1890, Hyderabad was a revenue-surplus State with Rs 73 lakh.

Akbar Owaisi said that the Seemandhra leaders could not keep the State united by criticising the Nizam.

The MIM leader’s speech evoked protests by the Seemandhra MLAs on multiple occasions. At one stage, TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu intervened and claimed that Hyderabad went on global map during TDP’s regime. He said it was the TDP that changed the identity of Hyderabad, which was earlier notorious for frequent curfews. He challenged Akbar Owaisi for an open debate on the development of Hyderabad.

Continuing his speech, Akbar Owaisi’s also claimed that over 1.5 lakh Muslims were massacred during the Police Action and it was clearly exposed by the Pandit Sunder Lal Committee. He said that the Hyderabad State was divided into three parts to dilute its identity. The properties owned by Muslims were taken over through Ceiling Act, Inam Abolition Act and other laws. He advised the Seemandhra leaders not to scratch the old injuries.

Akbar Owaisi said that Andhra Pradesh was ruled by Seemandhra Chief Ministers for almost 48 years. He asked as to why those leaders failed to develop their regions. He slammed Naidu for his claim on Hyderabad’s development and said people have lost faith on him as he was getting closer to the BJP-led NDA to promote communalism.

TDP’s Revanth Reddy strongly protested against Akbar Owaisi’s remarks and accused him of diverting the issue. He claimed that Naidu was secular and it was him who made Dr APJ Abdul Kalaam the President of India. He alleged that MIM opposed Kalam’s candidature. He also alleged that while the MIM was still having tie-up with the Congress in the GHMC, the same Congress party was behind the Muzaffarnagar riots. He also alleged that former Chief Minister Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy was behind the 1990 communal riots in Hyderabad and MIM has been maintaining close relations with the YSR Congress party.

At one stage, Legislative Affairs Minister S Sailajanath wanted to intervene. However, the MIM legislators stalled the proceedings of the House demanding that they would not allow Sailajanath to speak as they want Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to give clarifications.

Following uproar for over 10 minutes, the Deputy Speaker adjourned the House till Tuesday. INN

Akbar Owaisi to expand MIM across India Sun, 18 Aug 2013 00:37:48 +0000

Hyderabad, August 17: Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi announced that all efforts would be made to expand the MIM across India.

Delivering the first speech in a public meeting after a gap of nearly eight months, Akbar Owaisi told thousands of people who gathered at Khilwat Grounds on Saturday night that the MIM would expand its base to Maharashtra, Karnataka, Bihar, Gujarat and other parts of the country. Stating that every community has a representative party in India, he said there is not a single national party that represents over 25 crore Muslims in the country. He said extensive tours would be made to different parts of the country to form a strong political platform of Muslims and backward communities.

Akbar Owaisi made it clear that the MIM was not against any religion. However, it was opposed to the Sangh Parivar and other communal outfits. Ridiculing those who used to refer the MIM as a small party, he said that the MIM is now being counted as a representative organisation of Indian Muslims across the globe. He expressed concern over the on-going turmoil in Egypt, Syria and other countries in the Middle-East and said that Muslims should understand the conspiracies being hatched to divide them.

The MIM leader cautioned the Muslims of Hyderabad against the conspiracies of divisive forces and said they should restrain from fighting amongst themselves on sectarian or other basis. He said all mosques should be kept clean from all differences and they should be named after Khulfa-e-Rashideen, Ahle-Bait Athaar, Sahaba-e-Ikraam and wherever possible, the mosques should be named as Babri Masjid to send out a message that if you demolish one mosque, then we will construct hundred others.

Akbar Owaisi recalled the services of late Salar-e-Millat Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi for the Muslim community. He said that Salar-e-Millat was a selfless politician whose only goal in life was to ensure socio-economic and political empowerment of Muslims. He said thousand of students have passed out from the institutions formed by Salar-e-Millat.

Speaking about the cases registered against him in Adilabad, Nizamabad and other places for allegedly making hate speeches, Akbar Owaisi said that he has total faith in judiciary and would come out clean of all charges leveled against him.

Moulana Mufti Khaleel Ahmed of Jamia Nizamia, Moulana Masood Hussain Mujtahedi, MLAs Syed Ahmed Pasha Quadri, Virasat Rasool Khan, Mohammad Maozam Khan, former Mayor Mir Zulfeqar Ali, former Deputy Mayor Jaffer Hussain Meraj and others also spoke.

MIM chief promises safety for Seemandhra people Sat, 17 Aug 2013 21:33:25 +0000

Hyderabad, August 17: Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday asked the people from coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions not to fear anyone and comfortably live in Hyderabad.

Addressing a massive public meeting at Khilwat Grounds here on Saturday night, Asaduddin Owaisi said that the city of Hyderabad belongs to everyone and they should live here peacefully, without any fear. “If you consumed Gandipet water, then you are a Hyderabadi. Even if you have eaten Haleem, then you are a Hyderabadi,” he said to counter the word settlers which is commonly being used by a few parties to refer to people from Seemandhra region.

“Write MIM on your wall, if anyone harasses you,” Asaduddin Owaisi said to assure that his party would provide complete protection to people from different regions and other States.

Stating that the MIM opposed to giving Union Territory status to Hyderabad, the MIM chief said that his party was also against making Hyderabad the permanent capital of two States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. He said that Hyderabad should remain the capital of Telangana and there should be no change in its status. Describing union minister K Chiranjeevi as an amateur in politics, he slammed him for making the suggestion to Centre.

The MIM chief also asked the party cadre to gear up for the next polls and ensure that percentage of polling increases this time. He expressed confidence that besides winning the existing seven Assembly and one Parliament seat, the MIM would focus its attention on Rajendranagar, Jubilee Hills, Adoni, and other seats in the State.

Without taking the name of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in his speech, he said that while the Congress Government was trying to suppress the activities, it failed to take action against Modi who referred to Muslims as puppies. He also advised Telugu Desam Party to stay away from the trap laid by Modi who praised NTR while addressing a public meeting in Hyderabad last week.

MIM leaders Akbaruddin Owaisi and other legislators also addressed the public meeting which was organised to mark the fifth death anniversary of late Salar-e-Millat Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi.
