Hyderabad: BJP Telangana lawmaker Thakur Raja Singh on Wednesday slammed AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi for his remarks over the abrogation of the special status accorded to Jammu and Kashmir.
“Muslims have no issues and are happy with the revocation of the special status. Owaisi cannot comprehend how much development will take place there,” said Singh.
Singh criticised Owaisi after the latter called the centre’s decision a “historic blunder”.
“Prime Minister Modi does not have the political wisdom. He loves Kashmir but not its people,”Owaisi had said.
Singh also said, “The Muslims are facing many problems in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The Waqf board land is being grabbed by his party members. He must think about the Muslims being trafficked to Middle East countries before he thinks of Kashmir.”
The central government withdrew the special status under Article 370 of the Constitution to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcating it into two Union Territories- Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
