Hyderabad: In a surprised move All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president and Hyderabad Member of Parliament Asaduddin Owaisi extended his friendship to Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) president and former chief minister of Bihar, Lalu Prasad Yadav.
While addressing a public meeting in remembrance of party revivalist Abdul Wahed Owaisi in the old city of Hyderabad, Owaisi said, ”Lalu Yadav you cannot defeat BJP alone. If you want to work for the sake of Muslims welfare in Seemanchal, AIMIM is ready to come with you. But don’t think that I am saying this because of fear of the BJP.” Criticizing Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar who broke ‘Mahagathbandhan’ with Congress- RJD in the state and joined hand with the BJP, Owaisi said that knew Nitish will one day join BJP. Owaisi, who is a sharp critic of Congress party, termed Ahmed Patel as ‘Congress’s Big Muslim leader.’
