Yogi’s Telangana campaign shows his callousness: Owaisi

Hyderabad: AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday said Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath showed his callousness by campaigning in Telangana instead of consoling the family of the police officer shot dead by ‘gau-rakshaks’ in his state.

“This shows his callousness and complete disregard to what is happening in his state,” said the Hyderabad MP.

Yogi was in Telangana on Wednesday on the second leg of campaigning for Bharatiya Janata Party candidates in the Assembly elections.

“I hope people of Uttar Pradesh will realize what a callous, reckless and irresponsible CM they have got. I also hope UP police will also realize that when one of their officers is shot dead, the CM is not there to grieve with his family, but doing election tourism in Telangana,” Owaisi told reporters.

Police Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh was shot dead during the violence by a mob in Bulandshahr after the discovery of alleged cow carcasses on Monday.

When asked about statement of a top UP police officer that there was a conspiracy behind the killing, Owaisi said it was a conspiracy hatched and supported by Yogi.

“The conspiracy was hatched and supported by him. Let him say this because the accused were from Bajrang Dal, which is a sister organization of RSS and Yogi is part of Sangh Pariwar. Prime Minister Modi is also part of Sangh Pariwar. Your sister organization has killed a man in uniform. Will you stop your sister organization,” he asked.

Owaisi said this monster was creation of Sangh Pariwar. “This Frankenstein is out of their control. Muslims and Dalits were targetted and now people in uniform are being targeted,” he said.

The MP wondered if BJP government in UP would live up to its Constitutional duty to protect the right to life which is the fundamental right.
