Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has hit out at the AIMIM President Asaduudin Owaisi saying that he will have to have to leave Telangana if the BJP came to power.
Speaking in an election rally in Hyderabad, Adityanath, according to ANI, said, “If BJP comes to power I assure you Owaisi will have to flee from Telangana the same way Nizam was forced to flee from Hyderabad.”
Owaisi took to Twitter to just say that his response will come in his election rallies between 7 and 10 pm on Sunday night. He wrote, “Mera jawab zaroor suno 7pm se 10pm ke Har jalsa mein (My response in election rallies between 7 pm and 10 pm).”
Telangana goes to polls on 7 December while the counting will take place on 11 December. Results for Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram too will be announced the same day.
Owaisi had recently taken a dim view of Adityanath’s comments saying that Hindus will vote for him. In an election rally, Adityanath had taunted Congress that ‘you keep Ali, I have Bajrang Bali.’ This was widely seen as a blatant attempt of Adityanath to polarise voters along the religious line. Seeking votes by invoking religion is an unlawful act.
