Hyderabad, January 6 : Pradesh Congress Committee general secretary G Niranjan on Sunday stated that MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi’s speech at Tandur public meeting on Saturday was intended to deceive the people.
In a statement here, Niranjan said that the MIM chief was trying to misguide the nation on his brother Akbaruddin Owaisi’s provocative speeches at Niramal, Adilabad and other places. He said Owaisi’s remarks were intended to save his brother from the ire of the courts of Law.
“Their scant respect towards courts and law was proved with the midnight horror created by them at Bhagya Laxmi Temple at Charminar on October 31,” Niranjan said. “If their fight is not against Hindus, why they created this temple issue just before Diwali festival and created hurdles for festival arrangements,” he said.
The PCC General Secretary asked as to why Owaisi raised the temple issue at All-Party meeting convened by Home Minister in New Delhi on December 28.
He said that Asaduddin Owaisi was welcome to quit from the UPA Alliance after finding a new friend. However, it was wrong on his part to disturb the peaceful atmosphere and communal harmony across the State. He also asked Owaisi to point out a single decision of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy that was against minorities.
Niranjan said that Owaisi has forgotten the various measures taken by the successive Congress Governments for the welfare of minorities during the last several decades. However, by stating that minorities got benefitted only during YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s regime clearly indicates that the MIM wants to sail with his son’s party. He said that it was not proper on the part of Owaisi brothers to play with the future and welfare of the minority brothers for their own personal and political ends
The Congress leader also equated Owaisi brothers with the activities and speeches made by the MIM leaders under the leadership of Qasim Razvi.
