MIM is amused by TRS and Congress


With the MIM deciding to keep its option unbolt on the subject of supporting a party for the formation of the next government in Telangana, both the Telangana Rashtra Samiti and the Congress are taking its support for granted.

Both parties have also asserted the support of a majority of Muslims, counting local MIM leaders, in several constituencies that went to the polls on April 30.

When asked for this, the reaction of party leader Asaduddin Owaisi was, “Garib ki biwi,

ab ki bhabhi (a poor man’s wife is claimed as sister-in-law by everyone).”

He further said, “We are happy to note that we are much sought after by the traditional parties who intend to benefit from our support, but in the Telangana polls, we did not support any party and we have been maintaining a neutral stand.”

According to MIM source who admitted that at a few places in Karimnagar, TRS chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao had invited a few Majlis leaders to his meetings and had also claimed the support of the MIM.

“It did happen with Congress leaders, too, but the fact was that as a party, we did not extend support. It might be that a few MIM leaders were present in some meetings based on their local compulsions to defeat TD-BJP candidates,” the source said.
