Cong Offered Rs 25 Lakh To Owaisi?

Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday created a sensation of sorts by alleging that a Congress leader had offered him Rs 25 lakh, if he had cancelled his public meeting at Nirmal town on Monday night.

Owaisi, who addressed a “jalsa” of Muslims at Nirmal and asked them to vote for the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, said he had an evidence in the form of the call record and he would disclose it an appropriate time.

The MIM is not contesting the elections from Nirmal, but is supporting TRS candidate P Indrakaran Reddy.

“Nobody has the guts to lure me with money. I am ready to sacrifice my life for the people, but I will never compromise on my principles,” Owaisi said, asking the people not to succumb to any such pressures and influences.

The Congress has fielded former MLA and Adilabad District Congress Committee president Maheswara Reddy. There is no reaction from the Congress party to the allegations levelled by the MIM president.

Nirmal and parts of Adilabad, Asifabad are dominated by Muslims.
