BJP alone can fight the ‘communal, divisive politics’ of MIM in Telangana, says state BJP chief

Hyderabad: BJP alone can take on the “communal” MIM, and other parties in Telangana unlike the ruling TRS, Congress and TDP, state BJP president K Laxman has said.

“BJP alone can fight MIM. TRS, Congress, other parties, whenever they are in power, they share it with MIM. People of Telangana know well that BJP alone can fight this communal, divisive politics of MIM which TRS cannot do, neither Congress
nor TDP,” he said.

He said MIM was against the formation of the state and now TRS calls the party its natural ally. “Now, TRS is very close to Majlis (MIM). They say it (MIM) is our natural ally. People of Telangana are surprised. It is an anti-Telangana party. It fought against the formation of Telangana. It stood as a stumbling block for the creation of Telangana.

“I don’t know what made Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao come closer to MIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi and his party. Is it vote bank politics or for development of Telangana. People can understand,” he told PTI.

Owaisi used to say the car (TRS election symbol) belonged to TRS but its steering is in his hands, Laxman claimed. Laxman dismissed the speculation of BJP and TRS coming close with the latter possibly joining the NDA government at the Centre.

Claiming that the main opposition Congress and TDP have weakened in Telangana following defection of several MLAs to TRS, Laxman said BJP would like to emerge as a viable alternative to TRS.

He accused the TRS government of failing to deliver on its election promises, which included a two-bedroom house for poor, filling up one lakh government jobs and distributing three acres of land to poor.

Noting that the slogan of BJP is ‘sab ka sath, sab ka vikas’, Laxman said his party would like to take along all sections including minorities. It is only the BJP which nominated two minority leaders (Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and MJ Akbar) to the Rajya Sabha in the recent polls to the upper house, he added.

MIM polarising people on communal lines, says BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu

Union minister Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday accused Asaduddin Owaisi of indulging into communal politics by appealing citizens to vote for MIM in forthcoming civic polls if they don’t want ban on consumption of beef like in other states.”(Generally) what anybody (political leaders) say in elections? If we come to power, we will get piped water, roads (for people)…The party (MIM) is saying new things. Vote for us if you want beef. Beef for you (people) and development for us,” Naidu said addressing a campaign meeting at Saidabad in Hyderabad in support of the BJP-TDP combine for the February 2 Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The senior BJP leader said he had no objection about people’s culinary preferences.”I don’t to get into what to be eaten.

But, the point is…they are trying to divide people on religion basis,” he said.Naidu said the MIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen) led by Owaisi should explain why the Old City area of Hyderabad remained backward. Pointing out that MIM is not in the fray from Saidabad ward, he alleged the party had a tacit understanding with others.”MIM is the major enemy to the development of Hyderabad,” he said.Referring to some parties wooing Seemandhra natives who are called “settlers”, Naidu said all those living in Hyderabad have equal rights.Addressing a public meeting here yesterday, Owaisi had said that a ban on consumption and sale of beef may be imposed in the city if MIM was not voted to power in the polls.”I am not trying to scare you. But, the fact is if we don’t come to power, there may be a scope for ban on beef (in Hyderabad) on pretext of faith,” he had said.Owaisi also said that such a ban will hit the poor and also beef traders hard as it happened in Maharashtra.
