He lauded the AIMIM chief for preventing for the Constitutional rights of Muslims in a democratic method and even talked of utilizing the companies of Owaisi to forge a nationwide different to each BJP and Congress.

BJP, which goes aggressive to seize energy in Telangana, has been focusing on KCR for his friendship with Owaisi and accusing the TRS chief of pursuing politics of appeasement.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Dwelling Minister Amit Shah and different central leaders of BJP have slammed KCR for appeasement politics. Digging up the previous, the state management of the saffron get together has been making bitter assaults on AIMIM, calling it a celebration of Razakars’.

Razakars’ had been the volunteers or supporters of Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) who backed the Nizam who wished to maintain the state unbiased after India gained Independence in 1947.

13 months after August 15, 1947, Hyderabad State acceded to the Indian Union following India’s army motion codenamed Operation Polo’.
