AIMIM president and Hyderabad Lok Sabha member Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday claimed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav were hand in glove with each other against Muslims.
Addressing an election rally in Masasi in Pathardeva in favour of his party candidate, he termed Akhilesh “an anti-Muslim leader”.
Referring to a statement by former Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav, in which he had publicly said his son and chief minister Akhilesh was anti-Muslim, Owaisi said “people have to decide whom to believe when a father has said so about his own son”.
He further said that 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.
