Hyderabad: Asaduddin Owaisi, President of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) launched a scathing attack at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Pulwama terror attack and questioned whether he “ate beef biryani and slept” while the attack was taking place.
“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,” Owaisi said while addressing a public meeting on Saturday.
“I want to ask Prime Minister Modi and Rajnath Singh whether they ate beef biryani and slept,” he added.
Owaisi, who will contest from Hyderabad in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, said his fight is against those who are trying to end secularism in the country while observing that there is no difference between BJP and Congress.
“If anyone says that there are two national parties in India, I will say no to them because one national party is BJP and the other is ‘1.5 BJP’. There is no difference between BJP and Congress party,” he said. “My fight is against the forces who are trying to end secularism and brotherhood in the country,” Owaisi added.
It may be mentioned that Mr. Owaisi is campaigning for the upcoming parliamentary election which is scheduled to be held from 11th April to 19th May. The counting of votes will take place on 23rd May.
Earlier, commenting on BJP’s ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Mr. Owaisi had said that India wants an honest Prime Minister and not a ‘Chowkidar’.
Giving clarification on his younger brother’s nomination for Hyderabad MP seat, Mr. Owaisi had said that it is nothing but a “backup plan”. Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi had made it clear that he himself is the party’s official candidate.
