AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi says Congress offered him Rs 25 lakh to cancel an election rally in Telangana

Owaisi said this offer of bribe is proof of Congress party's arrogance

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday claimed that the Congress party tried to bribe him to cancel his public rally in Nirmal Assembly constituency in Adilabad district of the state.

According to the reports, the controversial Muslim leader Owaisi in a sensational claim alleged that a Congress candidate offered him Rs 25 lakh to abstain from campaigning. He further said that he had a call record to prove the charge.

While addressing a public meeting, the AIMIM chief said, “Congress offered me Rs 25 lakh to cancel the public program in Nirmal last evening. What do you call such a party that is doing such a thing?”

Owaisi slammed the Congress by saying that offering him Rs.25 lakh is the value of Congress party’s arrogance and warned them he is the one who cannot be bought. He further urged his party workers and voters to stay away from accepting money offered to them. Owaisi added that he would sacrifice but will never compromise his ideals and party’s interests.

Asaduddin Owaisi attended a public meeting in Nirmal town on Monday ahead of the Telangana state elections. Interestingly, AIMIM is not contesting in Nirmal but has lent his support to Telangana Rashtriya Samiti (TRS) candidate P Indrakaran Reddy.

The elections to Telangana state assembly will be held in a single phase election on December 7, 2018, and results of these elections will be announced along with the results of four other states on December 11, 2018
