Telangana Cong Trying To Woo MIM Again!

The Telangana Congress party, which is desperate to regain its hold in the state and come to power in 2019 elections, is not leaving any opportunity to get the political mileage.

As part of that, the Congress party is trying to woo the Majlie-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen back into its fold taking advantage of the support being extended by Telangana Rashtra Samithi to Bharatiya Janata Party.

Ever since the Telangana state was formed, the MIM has been a close ally of the TRS, but with the latter pampering the BJP of late, the Muslim party is angry.

This is being seen as an opportunity by the Congress, which has lost the support of the MIM during the regime of last chief minister of combined AP N Kiran Kumar Reddy in 2012. It hopes that the MIM will have no way but to return to the Congress fold.

That is why, senior Congress leader and former MP V Hanumantha Rao appealed to MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi to sever the ties with the TRS, as the latter has chosen to support BJP-led NDA’s candidate Ram Nath Kovind for President’s office.

“The other day, Asad was opposing NDA’s decision to field Ram Nath Kovind as its candidate in the Presidential election. The Hyderabad MP’s objection is that Kovind had earlier described Muslims and Christians as aliens to India. If Asad is really against NDA’s move, he should immediately back UPA candidate Meira Kumar for the top post,” the Congress leader demanded.
