Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi has launched a scathing attack on the BJP over the claim of its state chief Bandi Sanjay Kumar. Sanjay had said that now he will carry out a surgical strike in the old city of Telangana. Owaisi said that instead of the old city of Telangana, they should carry out surgical strikes on China. Addressing a gathering, Owaisi fiercely attacked the BJP and Union Minister Amit Shah.

Addressing a public meeting in 2020, Bandi Sanjay had said that the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and AIMIM chief Owaisi were trying to win the Hyderabad civic polls with the help of Rohingya, Pakistani and Afghan voters. Kumar, while campaigning for the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation elections, had said, "The GHMC elections should be held without voters from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Rohingyas. We will carry out surgical strikes in the old city after winning the elections."

Referring to that remark at a public meeting in Sangareddy on Tuesday, AIMIM chief Owaisi said, "They say surgical strikes will be carried out in the old city. If you have the strength, do a surgical strike on China."

Taking a dig at Union Home Minister Amit Shah's claim of an "understanding" between the AIMIM chief and the Telangana chief minister, Owaisi said, "Why do you (Amit Shah) feel pain if the steering is in my hand?" The steering is in my hand, so why do you have pain?"

Earlier, addressing the BJP's 'Sankalp Sabha' at Chevella in Karnataka on April 23, Amit Shah had alleged collusion between AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and KCR. "A government, whose steering wheel is with the Majlis (Owaisi), can never run Telangana. We are not afraid of Majlis, Majlis is a compulsion for you (BRS) and not for BJP. The Telangana government should work for the people of the state, not for Owaisi.
