Owaisi: T-State not in Muslims interest
The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) is pretty clear on bifurcation of the State. Formation of a separate Telangana state, will not be in the interest of the Muslims at all. The Majlis think it will inevitably result in its adversary, BJP, emerging stronger.
Such a scenario will not only be bad for the Muslim community but for secular polity as well, according to Majlis president, Asaduddin Owaisi.
The MIM gears up to celebrate the 52nd years of its revival on Tuesday, Owaisi. is expected to do some plain talking about the T-issue after unfurling the party flag at Dar-us-Salam.
With seven MLAs, the Majlis is able to assert itself in a House of 294. After formation of Telangana, it can play a bigger role in a House of just 119. However, Owaisi says that he is not thinking on improving the political fortunes of Majlis alone but concerned about the muslim community at large.
