‘If Kumaraswamy can, I can become CM too’: Akbaruddin Owaisi in Hyderabad

In another interesting turn of event in the ever-unfolding drama that is the dissolution of the Telangana state assembly, Akbaruddin Owaisi made a sensation remark on Saturday. Telangana, after being separated from Andhra Pradesh, held its first state assembly elections in May 2014 where TRS came to power winning 63 out of 119 seats.

This took place after his elder brother and the president of All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Asaduddin Owaisi praised TRS’s K Chandrashekar Rao for his decision to dissolve the Telangana assembly, Akbaruddin Owaisi made a claim on the Chief Minister’s chair while addressing a gathering of followers in Hyderabad. Akbaruddin, who is also the floor leader of the AIMIM in assembly also made an aggressive remark on Karnataka’s Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy. Akbaruddin Owaisi had in 2012 delivered a hate speech where the gist of which was that if the police presence was removed for 15 minutes, Muslims could show Hindus who is more powerful.

Akbaruddin while addressing a gathering of followers in Hyderabad stated-

“Our people will be successful, KCR said that elections in November and chief minister in December. To this I want to say that let elections happen in November, in December I will ask that who is supporting us? I will also ask if Kumaraswamy can, I can be CM too? But for now, my friends remember that our leaders used to say that politics was born in our house but for us let us work and they would also say that our condition is such that everyone has become a Commander-in-Chief, my friends being rich is different, being a leader is different, what is being rich in Islam?”.

AIMIM had a total of 7 MLAs in the just dissolved 119 seat Telangana Assembly, all of them are from Hyderabad.

The Telangana assembly was dissolved after the ruling dispensation Telangana Rashtra Samiti decided to dissolve the Assembly on September 6, and CM KC Rao informed the Governor about the same on the same day. Telegu Desam party is all set to hold a crucial meeting at the NTR Bhavan on Saturday. There are talks that TDP may choose to forge an alliance with Congress before the impending elections to increase their chances against KCR’s Telangana Rashtriya Samiti.

It is interesting to note that, in November last year this same Akbaruddin Owaisi had declared that AIMIM and TRS would contest the 2019 state assembly elections together. During a debate in assembly, he had stated that AIMIM-TRS combine had swept the GHMC elections the previous year and that they would repeat the same success in the next assembly elections. His comments had received thunderous applause from the treasury benches and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, too, had cheered by thumping his desk.

On November 6th, Chief Election Commissioner OP Rawat made it clear that the dates for election in Telangana will not be announced as per the convenience of any party.
