Telangana election results 2018: Owaisi declares support to TRS

The regional parties will take the Indian politics by storm, providing an alternative to both Congress and BJP, AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi said, adding Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) President and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao has the capability, political thinking, courage and secular outlook to provide such an alternative.

While addressing a public meeting organised by All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) late Wednesday night, Owaisi thanked all leading Muslim socio-religious organisations which supported MIM and TRS in the elections. The meeting continued till past midnight.

The MP said he would stand by the TRS chief in his efforts to play an important role in the national politics.

A Ping-Pong game between Congress and BJP was not good for the country, its secularism, federalism and diversity, Owaisi said.

He further appealed to people to ensure that not a single Lok Sabha seat in Telangana is won by BJP and Congress in the next year's elections.

He believes that the third force in the form of regional parties would enhance the bargaining power of the poor and the oppressed people.

Referring to Congress party's victory in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan Assembly elections, the AIMIM leader said it was a victory by default.

He said this was not enough to stop BJP from winning considerable number of Lok Sabha seats, as he pointed out that the BJP got nearly half of the seats in both the states.

The AIMIM declared support to TRS as no communal riot occurred in Telangana during last four-and-half years and unlike states in the north, there was not a single incident of mob lynching or reign of terror in the state, Owaisi said.

He said the government took various initiatives for the educational upliftment of Muslims.

Meanwhile, Akbaruddin Owaisi, one of the seven AIMIM legislators re-elected to Assembly, urged people to strength AIMIM, which is the voice of the poor and the oppressed.
