AIMIM MLA & Floor leader in Telangana Assemby, Akbaruddin Owaisi

AIMIM MLA & Floor leader in Telangana Assemby, Akbaruddin Owaisi, who as part of his campaign for Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) polls, dared the TRS government to demolish graves of former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh NT Rama Rao built at Hussain Sagar embankment in the city.

Akbaruddin Owaisi uttered these comments when he was criticising the government's demolition drives over encroachments along the Hussain Sagar lake.

This prompted Telangana IT Minister and TRS Working President KT Rama Rao to take to twitter to condemn the objectionable remarks.

"I strongly condemn the inappropriate remarks made by Majlis MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi today against the late Shri PV Narasimha Rao, former Prime Minister and the late Shri NTR Garla, former Chief Minister of the Commonwealth," tweeted KT Rama Rao.

And, in a subsequent tweet, the minister said, such indecent comments have no place in our democracy.

"These two leaders are also dignitaries who upheld the dignity of the Telugu people. One has been in the public service for a long time as Prime Minister and the other as Chief Minister. Inappropriate remarks on such superheroes are reprehensible. There is no place for such remarks in a democracy," KTR also tweeted.

Over 74 lakh voters are eligible to cast their votes in December 1 polls to 150-member GHMC. The counting of votes will be taken up on December 4.
