Congress questions MIM’s silence on RTC strike

Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Minorities Department Chairman Shaik Abdullah Sohail has questioned the silence of Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen on the  RTC strike.

“It is strange that MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi, who is also Hyderabad MP, did not speak anything either on the difficulties being faced by the people due to RTC strike and the illegal manner in which Chief Minister Chandrashekhar Rao ordered dismissal of more than 48,000 employees. He is quick to Tweet about everything that happens in the world. But his thoughts and fingers apparently get paralyzed when it comes to raising the issues concerning people of Hyderabad,” Sohail said in a media statement today.

Sohail said MIM leaders have no guts to either condemn KCR’s illegal action of dismissing RTC employees or to speak in favour of common people who are forced to pay extra charges to travel in private buses and other modes of transport. “MIM leaders have repeatedly failed to represent the people of Hyderabad in a proper manner.

But they still call themselves a national party and aspire to win seats in Maharashtra Assembly elections. Asaduddin Owaisi should first fulfill his duties as Hyderabad MP and later dream of becoming a national leader”.
