Hyderabad: Assam Chief Minister and BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday said that just like Article 370 was scrapped, the Nizam and Owaisi's names will be written off. He was addressing a rally of BJP workers in Warangal in Telangana.
He said the history of India says that Babur, Aurangazeb, and Nizam cannot live long. "I am sure that the legacy of Nizam will come to a complete halt and a new culture based on Indian civilization will emerge," he said.
Responding to Mr. Sarma's comments, former MP and MLC KavithaKalvakuntla tweeted, "@himantabiswa Ji, your remarks today once again restated the intent of BJP to erase the glorious history of Telangana. I wonder, why you & your party are so threatened with idea of unity? Did you forget the verdict of Telangana in 2018, where BJP lost deposits on 107 seats (sic)."
She also pointed out the TRS' struggle to form Telangana and generate job opportunities in the state. Stating that the unemployment rate in India is 8% now, she said the TRS has generated over 1.3 lakh jobs so far. "The initiatives of Hon'ble CM KCR Garu like #RaituBandhu , #KalyanaLaxmi and #MissionBhageeradha have been a testimony for entire country, if you look up for these schemes, you'll find some similar projects. Fun fact, your party renamed these schemes of Telangana Government," she tweeted.
