Owaisi sees possibility of third front, asks KCR to take lead

Must read

“There is a lot of probability (of a third front). I have been telling the Telangana Chief Minister to take the lead. There are several political parties, leaders in every state who are ready and if Chief Minister KCR takes the lead, then plenty of work can be done in this regard,” the Hyderabad MP said in response to a query about the possibility of a third front emerging.

On Congress party’s promise of Rs 12 lakh financial help to SC and ST families in the state, Owaisi said Rao has been giving Rs 10 lakh under the ‘Dalit Bandhu’ scheme.

Last week, the Congress had announced ‘SC, ST Declaration’ — a set of 12 promises of the party — for the coming Assembly elections in Telangana under which financial aid of Rs 12 lakh to Dalit families is promised by it in the state.

“They (Congress) are just talking about increasing Rs 2 lakh. KCR is the one who brought the scheme for Dalits, they (Congress) are just copying it. You are just doing cut-and-paste job. KCR has already implemented these. They do not have anything new,” the AIMIM leader added.

Alleging that VHP was the strength and weakness of BJP, Owaisi attacked the saffron party over the recent violence in Haryana.

Following the violence, collective punishment was being given to Muslims through demolitions of their buildings and properties there, he claimed.

“The country is watching all this. G20 meeting is happening. The BJP is in power there and will you bow down when an organisation threatens the government?” Owaisi questioned the BJP.
