Hyderabad: The photo of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) MP Imtiaz Jaleel and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Telangana State President Bandi Sanjay raised questions.
In the photo, Bandi Sanjay can be seen giving a model of the historic Charminar as a gift to Imtiaz Jaleel, who is representing Aurangabad parliamentary constituency.
It raised questions as leaders of both AIMIM and BJP leave no chance to criticize each other. Even in the recently held Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections, many BJP national leaders were seen levelling allegations against AIMIM. At the same time, AIMIM leaders were also seen criticizing BJP leaders.
Many beleive that leaders of both political parties level allegation against each other just to gain political mileage. Even many political parties have termed AIMIM the B-Team of BJP.
Imtiaz Jaleel issues clarification
Issuing clarification on Twitter, Imtiaz Jaleel wrote, “Few days back our central Govt committee on urban development visited Hyd to review Govt schemes. As is the practice the local MP anywhere we go felicitates every member of the team. That’s it!”.
Reacting to Jaleel’s clarification, senior Congress leader Mohammed Ali Shabbir wrote, “The picture is not fake. Entire world knows that BJP-MIM are secret allies and help each other. Both of you could not even hide your smiles due to warmth of friendship. Let common people stay friends and stop spreading hatred with your poisonous speeches”.
