If Kumaraswamy can become CM, why can’t we?: Akbar Owaisi

HYDERABAD: Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen floor leader, Akbaruddin Owaisi has made sensational comments on Telangana Assembly dissolution.

AIMIM, the oldest party of Telangana presently has seven sitting MLAs and a massive support of the Muslim community.

Addressing a public gathering in Mallepally on Friday, Akbaruddin said, “KCR had said that the elections will happen in November and he will become Chief Minister in December. I am saying.. after the elections in November, I will ask in December who will support us? We too will ask… if Kumaraswamy becomes (Chief Minister), can’t we?”

“If Kumaraswamy can become CM, why not me?” Owaisi added while reminding his father’s words.
