Failing to deliver, BJP reverting to ‘original agenda’: Asaduddin Owaisi

"All this cow, Ram Mandir are part and parcel of the BJP agenda. The aim is to make India a 'Hindu Rashtra'. The BJP has completely failed to provide jobs; BJP promised the creation of two crore jobs a year, they have failed to revive the economy", alleged Owaisi.

AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi today accused the BJP of reverting to its “original agenda” by raising issues like Ram temple and cow protection as it had failed to deliver on its poll promises of economic revival and job creation. The Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad also said that a law banning cow slaughter across the country, as mooted by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, cannot be formulated as the matter was a state subject.

“All this cow, Ram Mandir (issues) are part and parcel of the BJP (agenda). Basically, the aim and objective is to make India a ‘Hindu Rashtra’,” Owaisi alleged while talking to PTI here. “The BJP has completely failed to provide jobs… (They had) promised creation of two crore jobs a year. They have failed to revive the economy.

“You have seen lot of ceasefire violations (by Pakistan). These are the core issues where the BJP has failed to deliver. So they have reverted back to their original agenda,” Owaisi alleged. While the Vishwa Hindu Parishad has reportedly started stock-piling stones for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya, BJP MP from Unnao Sakshi Maharaj recently said the date of construction would be finalised at a religious congregation scheduled in November in Karnataka.

To a question regarding a recent proposal to set up ‘cow sanctuaries’ and initiating a ‘Project Cow’ on the lines on ‘Project Tiger’, Owaisi said India has 550 million farm animals but there was only 40 per cent fodder for them. “So where and how is the (remaining) 60 per cent going to be created? Are you going to create forests,” he asked.

“Urbanisation is the phenomena all over the world. We have only 40 per cent fodder for 550 million farm animals. Where are you going to get the fodder from? Are you going to import it? “We have high malnutrition among children. We are not able to provide nutrition to our children. More than 40 per cent of the children have stunted growth,” Owaisi said. When asked about Swamy’s recent statement that the government will bring in a law banning cow slaughter across the country, Owaisi said constitutionally, it cannot be done because the matter is a state subject.

    The harm caused by congress in 70 years, Modi break that record in just 3 years. India will never recover again because it was like Saanp Seedhi when country reached 99 then Safron Lyncher Terrorism put it back at zero.

        Sir Owaissudin Awaisi, It is the demand of the countless Muslims of India to rebel against the Indian state and request you to take leadership and rally the Indian Muslims behind you in breaking India into thousands pieces. You can be a leader of the United Muslim States of India with Hyderabad Deccan as its capital. Muslims of India unite and persuade Owaissudin Awaisi to accept the mantle of leadership in the third war of independence of muslkms from India. Let's demolish Somnath and take revenge of 1992 and 2002 genocide from these kafir Hindus. Muslims of India unite.

          He is right in so much as the BJP has not kept to its lofty promises. Mou after MOU have been signed but how many have borne fruits. Make in India is in the slumps, no one wants to invest, the poor have lost jobs because of demonetisation and now GST, without trial is going to a lot of lives up. To politicians the world over, and not just India, its the handful of rich that matter because they keep them alive. the poor mater not because they are easy to fool and become religious bigots at the drop of a politicians pin. The poor chaps don't know better.

            India is not Hindu property. Both Hindus and Muslims have equal share. Moreover there are 280 million Muslims in India. Can you pack them all and send to Pakstn. So don't create violence and communal hatred ness and live with Muslims peacefully.
