Modi-Akhilesh hand in glove against Muslims: Owaisi

Gorakhpur: AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday claimed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav were hand in glove with each other against the Muslims.

Addressing an election rally in Masasi in Pathardeva in favour of his party candidate, he termed Akhilesh Yadav “an anti-Muslim leader”.

Referring to a statement of former Samajwadi Party President Mulayam Singh Yadav in which he had publicly said that his son and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was anti-Muslim, Owaisi said that “people have to decide whom to believe when a father has said so about his own son”.

He further pointed out how though his party has just seven legislators in Telangana, he has ensured that the state government opened 70 residential schools for Muslims to study.

“Over 12,000 students are enrolled here and food, uniforms and other facilities were available free of cost,” he said while exhorting the people to vote for AIMIM candidates who are in the fray in 40 assembly constituencies.
