Asaduddin Owaisi running government, not KCR: Telangana BJP president
Telangana BJP president Dr K Laxman on Wednesday took a dig at AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao claiming that it was Owaisi who was running the government and not KCR. "Asaduddin Owaisi had said once that the symbol of TRS party might be a car but its steering was in his hands, indicating that Telangana government is run by him, not KCR. This is because TRS revolves and runs around AIMIM agenda," Laxman told ANI.
Targeting Owaisi over his comment that "he hopes that AIMPLB challenges the Triple Talaq Bill in the Supreme Court", Laxman said: "Owaisi says the Triple Talaq Bill is an attack on Muslims. Being a barrister, he should know how Muslim women have suffered. In Shah Bano case, it was the apex court that ensured she got justice." He also attacked former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi for not passing the Bill during his tenure and amending the Act only for the 'sake of vote bank politics'.
