Hitting back at the BJP, Owaisi alleged that Adityanath was communal politics BJP Chief Amit Shah has nothing to talk about other than AIMIM. Taking a dig at Adityanath, Owaisi said, "They know nothing about history. Had they read, they would have known that Nizam did not run away. He was made Raj Pramukh. Nizam sold his gold to help India financially during a war with China." "150 children die of encephalitis in his Gorakhpur, but he doesn't care. He is just dividing people," the Hyderabad MP added.
