After Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president KCR called All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) a friendly party on Thursday, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi ruled out any possibility of an alliance with TRS on Firday.
AIMIM presently has seven sitting MLAs.
While Owaisi hailed TRS chief for his early polls decision, his brother Akbaruddin, who is floor leader of the party, made a sensational comment and put claim on the CM’s chair.
When HD Kumaraswamy with fewer seats can become chief minister, why can’t Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM)? – Akbaruddin while addressing a gathering in Hyderabad said
Akbaruddin’s comment has got attention as AIMIM is the oldest party of Telangana and has a massive support of the Muslim community.
Meanwhile, on Friday the Congress held its emergency core committee meeting in Hyderabad after which the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy described the next elections as “Dharma Yuddham” (holy war) against “autocratic, arrogant and dictatorial rule of KCR and his family members”.
The Congress said that they hope all opposition parties including Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Left parties will unite and put a fight against TRS and KCR.
The party also appealed civil society, unions of employees, women organisations, students’ groups, all NGOs, and voluntary organisations to join the Dharma Yuddham to bury the corrupt regime of TRS in next elections.
On Saturday, the TDP chief and Chief minister of Andhra Pradesh Chandrababu Naidu will hold a meeting with his Telangana unit party leaders where discussions on an alliance with Congress and other like-minded parties are possible.
After the dissolution of the Assembly by KCR, crucial political developments are taking place in Telangana which is possibly going for polls along with three other states of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan.
