Is it still Razakar rule?: Sarma on Akbaruddin's misbehaviour with cops

Hyderabad: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, of the BJP, on Wednesday rapped AIMIM floor leader and Chandrayangutta MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi for his alleged misbehaviour with police personnel.

Sarma was referring to a viral video of an altercation between the police and Akbaruddin Owaisi, after the police had allegedly asked him to conclude his speech on time, as per the model code of conduct. “On my way from the airport, I saw a video of Owaisi threatening a police inspector and the ‘bechara (helpless)’ police was listening,” he said.

Addressing a public meeting in Charminar, he said: “I was stunned by seeing the video, which raised several questions… is the country still democratic or is there still a Mughal or Razakar rule?”

Pushing religious agenda, he said that the “pran prathista” of Lord Ram is scheduled for January 22 in Ayodhya, exhorting the public to vote for the BJP.

Continuing his attack on Akbaruddin, he said: “Similar behaviour was exhibited by some people in Uttar Pradesh and Assam, but the BJP government, with a little effort, had put an end to it.”

“Just think once… If BJP forms government in Telangana, will anyone dare to abuse a cop in such a manner?” he said.

Sarma also touched on the sub-categorisation of scheduled castes, saying it would be taken up soon after the BJP comes to power in the state.

He also attacked BRS chief K. Chandrashekar Rao, saying that the BJP would end his appeasement politics upon coming to power. He accused Rao of backtracking on promises to BCs, as he failed to make a Dalit the chief minister, and also rapped him over the TSPSC question paper leaks.
