Hyderabad: Senior Congress leader, Mr. Mohammed Ali Shabbir alleged that the opportunistic political decisions of Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi, MP of Hyderabad made the entry of BJP possible in Telangana State.
He pointed out that the blind support extended by Mr. Owaisi to TRS with an intention to damage Congress divided the secular votes.
Mr. Shabbir was talking to press reporters yesterday at his residence. He made fun of TRS and its ally MIM that they were claiming to bag all the 17 MP seats of Telangana but people rejected TRS and brought it down to a level of single digit party.
While quoting Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi, Mr. Shabbir said that Mr. Owaisi had gone to the extent of saying that with the victory of 17 MPs in TS, Mr. KCR will be the next Prime Minister of the country. Some people believed him which resulted in division of secular votes.
Citing the examples of Rajinder Nagar and Zaheerabad, Mr. Shabbir said that Congress candidates faced defeats with marginal votes.
Mr. Shabbir also said that wherever MIM Supremo campaigned, its benefited BJP. He categorically said that BJP has no future in Telangana State. Congress is the only alternative.
Pointing at the changed political scenario of TS, Mr. Shabbir said that immediately four months of the Assembly polls, people changed their mind. It is a slap on the face of KCR.
Giving his own example, Mr. Shabbir said that he lost in Kamareddy in Assembly election by a margin of 4000 votes but in the same Constituency, Congress won by a margin of 17000 votes in LS Polls. The places which were supposed to be the strongholds of TRS, it failed. In Sircilla, Mr. KTR won Assembly seat with a majority of 90,000 votes but in Lok Sabha Polls, TRS polled only 5000 votes. He said that KCR’s pride drowned him. People of Telangana do not like autocracy, they want democracy. KCR and his family members were ruling the state as a royal dynasty.
