Hyderabad: Hyderabad MP and All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday condemned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision of not allowing representatives from AIMIM party to be part of the meeting on April 8. He called the decision an insult to the people of Hyderabad and Aurangabad.
The barrister questioned Modi asking whether the people of Hyderabad are any less because they voted for AIMIM.
Owaisi tweeted, “@PMOIndia this is tauheen of the proud people of Aurangabad &Hyderabad. Are they lesser humans because they chose @aimim_national ? Pls explain why they're not worthy of your kind attention? As MPs it's our job to represent to you the economic & humanitarian misery of our people.”
On April 8, the Prime Minister will interact with floor leaders of various political parties through video conferencing, to discuss ways to fight against Coronavirus in the country.
A press note released by Minister of Parliament Affairs Pralhad Joshi said “Hon’ble Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi will be interacting with floor leader of various Political Parties (Who have more than 05 MPs in Parliament combinedly Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha) through video conference on 8th April 2020 at 11:00 AM.”
Owaisi further said that he needed to be a part of this meeting to put forth his ideas on how Hyderabad can fight the pandemic.
“People of Hyd & Aurangabad elected me & @imtiaz_jaleel so that we'll raise THEIR issues. Now, we're being denied an audience with His Highness. Hyd has 93 active #COVID19 cases, I want to put forth our ideas on how we can fight this pandemic & identify areas where we're lacking," he tweeted.
AIMIM has two MPs, Asaduddin Owaisi and Imtiaz Jaleel from Aurangabad, which is less than the number of MPs required according to the Prime Minister to attend the video conference.
