HYDERABAD: The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President and Hyderabad lawmaker Asaduddin Owaisi after criticising PM Modi with his “beef biryani” comments over Pulwama, once again took a jab at PM Modi but this time using Gujarat-favourite “Dhokla”.
Addressing a public meeting here in Hyderabad, he said “Two days ago, I said that in Pulwama a suicide bomber attacked our forces, will PM Modi take responsibility? I said was he sleeping after eating beef biryani. PM’s followers on social media are saying that he doesn’t eat non-veg. I don’t know if he eats veg or non-veg. Now I will say that he slept after eating Dhokla, Idli or Vegetable Biryani.”
Earlier Mr Owaisi while addressing a public meeting on Saturday said “Indian Air Force dropped bombs in Balakot. On this issue, Amit Shah said 250 dead and Rajnath Singh said NTRO tapped 300 cell phones in Balakot. You can see that 300 cell phones were there in Balakot, but you could not see how 50 kg RDX was moved to Pulwama under your nose.”
“I want to ask Prime Minister Modi and Rajnath Singh whether they ate beef biryani and slept,” he asked.
After the February 14 Pulwama attack, the BJP government led by PM Narendra Modi has been criticised by several opposition leaders in which over 40 soldiers were killed.
