British deputy high commissioner’s tweet on Balapur Maqbara angers Asad Owaisi

The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday was annoyed by the British deputy high commissioner Andrew Fleming’s twitter post who tweeted the picture of an old monument in Ballapur which has become a dump yard.

The member of Parliament from Hyderabad responding to the British deputy high commissioner’s twitter post said: “Please remember you’re not Queen’s Governor General, but a diplomat. He cannot tell us how to manage our affairs anymore. Having lived in the UK, I know it’s not exactly a utopia. Maybe focus on preventing more Greenfells from happening.”

Responding to Mr Owaisi, Fleming on Twitter said “I have a passion for heritage as I know do and feel many amazing monuments fall short of their potential. I see sharing observations as a part of modern diplomacy. How does this tweet meddle in your affairs?”

This infuriated the Hyderabad MP who later said that “You are crossing all boundaries of a DIPLOMAT,” Mr Owaisi replied, “It does we as an independent country can manage our affairs, monuments and preserve our history, Your Excellency you are crossing all boundaries of a DIPLOMAT it all starts with History. Can you give back Kohinoor, Tipu Sultan’s personal articles?”
