30th November, 2020

Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday said that Hyderabad should get rid of Nizam culture. We will get rid of it and modernize the city in a democratic way. He fiercely attacked the opposition here. Said, when we take action against Bangladeshis and Rohingya living illegally in the country, then the opposition starts making noise and noise. He said that All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President Asaduddin Owaisi should write in writing that exclude them, then see what action the central government takes.

Home Minister speaks in the stronghold of Owaisi on the last day of campaigning of Hyderabad Municipal Corporation

In the press conference after a road show here on the last day of the Hyderabad Municipal Corporation election campaign, the Home Minister said that whenever the matters of Bangladeshis and Rohingya are discussed in Parliament or in TV channels, they start favoring them. The public knows everything. When I take action they shout in Parliament. Haven't you seen them making fun of you. Tell them to write to us that if I keep these people living illegally out of the country, then I will do it. In elections, mere rhetoric does nothing.

Shah said this after Owaisi's statement in which he said what the Home Minister is doing if the Rohingya are living illegally. He said that due to Sardar Patel, Hyderabad and the surrounding areas were associated with India, but who had campaigned to go to Pakistan during that time, we want to rid Hyderabad of such Nizam culture. Shah said, we want to make Hyderabad a modern city by freeing it from the Nawab-Nizam culture. They want to move Hyderabad from dynasty to democracy, corruption to transparency and appeasement to development.

We will make Hyderabad an IT hub

He said that there is every possibility of Hyderabad becoming an IT hub. We will make it an IT hub. Right now, the biggest obstacle in this is the alliance of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and the Congress in the municipal corporation. Shah expressed confidence that this time the mayor of the city will be from the BJP.

Roadshow done in Hyderabad

On the last day of the municipal election campaign, the Home Minister arrived in Hyderabad on Sunday and offered prayers at Bhagyalakshmi Temple in Old City. He also performed aarti of the Mother Goddess in the temple. After this, Shah did a roadshow at Warsiguda in Secunderabad. There was a huge crowd of people.

Bhagyalakshmi Temple came into the limelight

This temple, located near the historic Charminar in the old city area, was once again in the discussion in the municipal elections scheduled for December 1. The area has more people from a particular community. This has made it a sensitive issue. The election campaign started in Hyderabad by the Home Minister with the aarti at the temple.

Significantly, there is a fierce competition between the ruling party, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), AIMIM and BJP in the state regarding local body elections in Hyderabad. The BJP is running an election campaign in the city and during this period many high profile leaders of the party have also been seen. Apart from Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath, Union ministers Prakash Javadekar, Smriti Irani and party president JP Nadda campaigned in Hyderabad. Elections for the 150-member GHMC are scheduled on December 1 and Votes will be counted on December 4.
