There was a heated exchange between Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and MIM floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi, who has alleged that innocent Muslim minority youth were being harassed. He alleged that the funds allotted for Muslim minority welfare were being diverted.
Refuting the charges of the MIM leader, the Chief Minister asserted that the State government was committed to the welfare of SCs, STs, weaker sections and minorities and needed no one’s certificate.
Intervening during the debate on the SC & ST Sub-Plan Bill in the Assembly on Sunday, Kiran Kumar Reddy took serious objection to the remarks of Owaisi about harassment of the Muslim youth. The Chief Minister said Law & Order should not be taken into hands by any one. The State Government has done better than any other governments regarding welfare of the Muslims. We don’t have certificate of MIM whether the Government was secular.
“Whenever issue of temple at Charminar comes in the house, I will tell what we done. I can not allow anybody to suffer innocent people due to their political gains”, he made it clear.
The Chief Minister said MIM has own seven seats due to the support of the Congress party.
