Hyderabad: Calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘chairman of the factory of lies’, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi said the BJP’s promise of repealing Article 370 can’t be fulfilled under the current Constitutional framework.
Addressing a public rally, Owaisi said, “Narendra Modi is the chairman of the factory of lies and it is child’s play to invent lies. They (BJP) cannot give jobs but are only spreading lies. They say they will abolish Article 370 and 35A. But I am telling them that as per Indian Constitution, they cannot do it. They ran the government with Mehbooba Mufti but could not do anything about Article 370”.
“There has been accession of Jammu and Kashmir and it hasn’t merged with India. Hence, the promise made in BJP manifesto is nothing but fake”, he said.
Owaisi also attacked the Prime Minister on the issues of love jihad and mob-lynching and said, “We need a Prime Minister who supports the weak and poor, who can provide employment, who understands the beauty of India and can work to better it. This Prime Minister stayed silent when people were beaten in the name of love jihad. When people were being killed in the name of a cow, he failed to fulfill his Constitutional responsibility.”
The AIMIM chief also talked about BJP’s stand on Sabarimala and said, “BJP has said that Sabarimala is a matter of devotion and hence there shouldn’t be any change in the customs. They have openly said that they will protect Sabarimala customs. However, when it comes to triple talaq, why does their stand differ? Is it not a religious issue?”
Telangana will go to polls in a single phase for all 17 Lok Sabha seats on April 11. Counting of votes will be done on May 23.
