Attacking All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Owaisi, Shah promised to restart celebration of Hyderabad Muslim Day. “Due to fear of Owaisi, KCR government no longer celebrates Liberation Day on 17th September. If BJP forms the government in the state, Hyderabad Liberation Day will be celebrated in a grand way,” Shah said.
“There is going to be a tripartite battle. On one side are TRS and Chandrashekhar Rao who made Telangana kneel before AIMIM, another is Congress who sent Sidhu to hug Pakistan Army Chief and on the third side are nationalists led by PM Modi,” Shah added.
