He claimed that his party not only retain its seven seats, but additionally it will also win the Rajendranagar seat.
Criticising UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the Hyderabad MP said no one can force him or any Muslim to flee from the country.
He said, “Both of us are by birth Indians, but there is a difference between us that I have an exclusive right, I am Indian by choice also, we had rejected the Jinnah theory and accepted Hindustan.’’
Mr Asaduddin Owaisi on a question about his party’s stand on national level, said India’s politics cannot be bipolar. India’s diversity is very huge, unfortunately or deliberately, India’s diversity is not being represented by the Congress and the BJP.

When asked about woman candidates on Majlis ticket, he said, “We have women corporators; though this time we did not field any woman, but in the future we will give tickets to women also, we are committed to empowerment and address the problems of women. This time we conducted three to four exclusive meetings for women in every Assembly during the campaign.”...
