Hyderabad MP and President of All India Majlis e-Ittehadul Musslimin (MIM) party Asaduddin Owaisi found fault with the BJP government for not inviting him and his party’s lone elected legislative member from Aurangabad to the proposed floor leaders meeting convened by the Prime Minister on April 8 in New Delhi to discuss the strategies to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
In a tweet on Saturday, Asaduddin termed the act as ‘Thauheen’ means insulting the pride of Hyderabad and the people of Maharashtra. His party’s Aurangabad MLA Imtiaz Jaleel has also not received any invite till date.
He tweeted: “People of Hyd and 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”.
In another tweet, he said: “Please 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”.
