HYDERABAD: In a counter-challenge to MIM chief and MP Asaduddin Owaisi, AICC secretary and Telangana Congress Affairs in-charge Bose Raju has asked Mr Owaisi to contest from the Rae Bareli Lok Sabha Constituency in Uttar Pradesh.
Reacting to Owaisi’s challenge to Rahul Gandhi to contest from the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency, Bose Raju said, “Rahul Gandhi is a national leader, he can contest from anywhere in the country. However, who is Owaisi to decide where Rahul Gandhi should contest from.”
Speaking to the media on Saturday, Mr Bose Raju said that Congress President Rahul Gandhi will visit Telangana again on October 27 and in day or two, the TPCC will decide where Rahul Gandhi’s meetings should be held.
He said that they had sent a report to AICC on Mr Rahul Gandhi and Ms Sonia Gandhi’s meetings in Telangana as part of the election campaign in the upcoming Telangana assembly elections. He said in two or three days clarity will appear on Ms Sonia Gandhi’s public meetings.
He said that there was no political significance regarding the Rajeev Sadbhavana Yatra where Mr Rahul Gandhi participated at the Charminar in Hyderabad on Saturday.
