All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi’s younger brother, Akbaruddin Owaisi stirred a controversy amid a war of words between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and AIMIM chief.
While campaigning for Telangana Assembly elections, Akbar attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking him to rise to the level of Prime Minister, instead of talking about Chai, Chai, Chai….
Akbar’s comment came a day after when his brother Asaduddin Owaisi slammed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for campaigning in Telangana instead of taking care of his own constituency.
#WATCH Akbaruddin Owaisi, AIMIM in Hyderabad: Baat karein ki ‘chai chai chai, chai. Har waqt vahi, demonetisation. Ye chai, vo chai, kadak chai, naram chai. Ye Wazir-e-Azam hain ya kya hain? Arey chaiwala tha, ab Wazir-e-Azam hai. Wazir-e-Azam jaisa ban jao. (02.12.2018) pic.twitter.com/t4xA1S103j

Earlier, Yogi Adityanath had said that if BJP comes to power Asaduddin Owaisi will have to flee the same way Nizam was forced to flee from Hyderabad.
Speaking at a rally in Hyderabad, Akbaruddin said, “Baat karein ki chai chai chai, chai. Har waqt vahi, demonetisation. Ye chai, vo chai, kadak chai, naram chai. Ye Wazir-e-Azam hain ya kya hain? Arey chaiwala tha, ab Wazir-e-Azam hai. Wazir-e-Azam jaisa ban jao. (Prime Minister Narendra Modi always talks about chai, chai chai, demonetisation, chai. You (PM Modi) were a Chai wala, now you’re the Prime Minister. Act like Prime Minister.)”
On Sunday night, responding to Yogi Adityanath’s remark, AIMIM Member of Parliament said that India is his father’s country and nobody could force him to leave it.
Elaborating his remark, Owaisi said, “It is my religious belief that Prophet Adam when descended on the Earth from Paradise, he first came to India. Thus India is my father’s country and nobody can force me to flee.”
The Telangana Assembly Elections 2018 will take place on December 7 for 119 seats and the counting of votes will take place on December 11.
