Bhartiya Janata Party’s steps into Hyderabad with the youth leader Tejasvi Surya campaigning for the upcoming polls which will be held next month. The youth leader didn’t leave any opportunity to show what kind of person is the AIMIM chief Owaisi. Tejaswi Surya described him as a threat to India’s safety.
“every vote for Owaisi is considered as a vote against India”, said BJP’s Tejaswi Surya
Accusing both Asaduddin Owaisi and his brother Akbaruddin Owaisi of “playing divisive and communal politics”, Tejasvi Surya, a BJP MP from Bengaluru, also accused the AIMIM leaders of “allowing only Rohingya Muslims, not development”, in Hyderabad.
“Every single vote to Owaisi is a vote against India and everything that India stands for,” said Mr Surya, recently elevated as the BJP’s youth wing president.
“He (Asaduddin Owaisi) speaks the language of rabid Islamism, separatism and extremism which Mohammed Ali Jinnah also spoke. Every Indian should stand against divisive and communal politics of the Owaisi brothers.”
The firebrand BJP MP called the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation polls to be held on December 1 the BJP’s gateway to the south.
“Change Hyderabad today, change Telangana tomorrow, change South India day after tomorrow. The whole nation is watching Hyderabad,” he said.
The civic polls in Hyderabad have become a high profile contest with the BJP raising the stakes after winning a byelection in the Dubbaka assembly seat, a stronghold of Telangana’s ruling party TRS (Telangana Rashtra Samiti).
Sensing an opportunity to consolidate its base in Telangana ahead of assembly polls due in three years, the BJP decided to go all out in the civic election in Hyderabad, where the Owaisis have a strong grip.
“It is laughable that Akbaruddin and Asaduddin Owaisi are speaking of development. They haven’t allowed development or new infrastructure project in old Hyderabad. The only thing they allowed is Rohingya Muslims,” said Mr Surya.
He alo slammed the CM KCR for joining his hands with AIMIM leader and speculating to convert Hyserabad into Istanbul.
Besides Mr Surya, the BJP has drafted several national leaders to campaign in Hyderabad, forcing the state’s ruling party to respond.
