There seems to be no end to the war of words between the BJP and AIMIM leaders ahead of assembly elections in Telangana. Reportedly, AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi, brother of party’s chief Asaduddin Owaisi has now taken a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi by referring him to ‘Chaiwala’.
Speaking at an election rally in Hyderabad on Sunday, Akbaruddin Owaisi, four-time MLA from Telangana went on to advise the Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to behave like a ‘Chaiwala’ but to conduct himself like the Prime Minister of the country.
“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. ( He every time either speaks of ‘Chai’ or demonetisation…Is he a Prime Minister. You were a tea-seller in the past and the Prime Minister now, behave like a Prime Minister),” said Akbaruddin Owaisi.

The younger Owaisi further attacked the Prime Minister by saying that AIMIM party and its leaders have the capacity to force a ‘Chaiwala’ to bow down in front of the Muslims. Reacting to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s earlier statements, Akbaruddin Owaisi mocked his saffron-clad attire and said the next 1000 generations of Owaisi will stay in this country.
Earlier, while speaking at a campaign rally on Sunday Yogi Adityanath had warned Asaduddin Owaisi that if BJP comes to power, Owaisi will have to flee Hyderabad as the Nizams of the Hyderabad did.
The elections to Telangana legislative assembly will be held 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. Congress and TDP have formed a pre-poll alliance to fight against the ruling TRS led by K Chandrashekhar. The BJP is fighting Telangana elections alone against the Congress, TDP, AIMIM and the ruling TRS.
