Telangana: Owaisi continues to provoke, now offers beef to Amit Shah

In a controversial statement, MIM President Asaduddin Owaisi said that he would ask Telangana caretaker Chief Minister KC Rao to send BJP President Amit Shah some kalyani (beef) biryani.

Owaisi was reacting to reports of BJP President’s comment where the latter had claimed KC Rao was providing biryani to MIM men. Addressing a rally in Kukatpally, Owaisi said that he will immediately call KC Rao and ask him to send at least kalyani biryani (beef biryani) to Amit Shah. Kalyani biryani is another of the famous biryanis from Hyderabad made with either beef or buff.

“Amit Shah said that KC Rao is sending biryani to Majlis men. We didn’t know that Amit Shah also liked biryani. If he is jealous that he as not fed biryani, then I would immediately call KC Rao that at least send him (Shah) a parcel of kalyani biryani,” Owaisi said to a cheering audience.

Taking a dig at Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Nawaz Sharif’s residence, Owaisi even questioned Shah on what was Modi offered to eat at Sharif’s daughter’s wedding reception in Pakistan.

“If someone is eating, why is your stomach aching? You can eat too,” Owaisi said.

Owaisi is known for making such controversial statements. Earlier he had mocked BJP’s Telangana manifesto proposal of distributing 1 lakh cows every year. A report by Times Now claimed that Owaisi stated that what he does with his cow is his choice. While other media reports claimed that Owaisi had stated that he will keep his cow with the utmost respect, but the question is whether the BJP will give him one.

Owaisi has often claimed that the BJP is anti-Muslim. He had recently stirred up a controversy implying that the government does not hire Muslims for serving in the security forces. During the demonetisation in 2016, Owaisi had claimed that the BJP government in the centre is not providing enough cash in the ATMs located in Muslim dominated areas.

Telangana will go to vote on 7th December along with Rajasthan and the results will be declared on 11th December along with other four states, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Mizoram. While the incumbent TRS and BJP are fighting solo, Congress and TDP have formed a pre-poll alliance. BJP had also proposed to regulate liquor sales in the state if voted to power. Popular Hindu spiritual leader Swami Paripoornananda has recently joined BJP and is expected to fight in the state assembly elections.
