Hyderabad, Jan.2 (NSS): The Congress has strongly condemned AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi for his provocative remarks against TPCC president Uttam Kumar Reddy on micro blogging site Twitter. “Asaduddin has no business to advise the Telangana Congress president on what he should speak and how he should protest against the CAA. “Congress is a national party with clarity on the issues and its leaders are highly capable of handling agitations”, he added.

“Asaduddin Owaisi can continue to mislead people through his role as brand ambassador of Chief Minister Chandrashekhar Rao. But he should not act as a spokesperson of Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar to deviate the issue,” TPCC Minorities Department Chairman Shaik Abdullah Sohail said in a statement on Thursday.

Abdullah Sohail said the Congress has taken the right decision of declining Asaduddin Owaisi’s invitation to participate in the Nizamabad meeting. “Everyone knows that Owaisi has been trying to sabotage the anti-CAA protests in Telangana. He made all-religious leaders surrender before KCR and the meeting at Pragathi Bhavan was only meant to assure that they would not do anything that displeases the BJP Government at the Centre,” he said and asked why Owaisi did not invite his close friend and Minister K. Tarakarama Rao for the Nizamabad meeting. Further, he asked as to why MIM was not holding joint protests with TRS in other areas.
