Hyderabad, December 2: Sharpening the "Muslim appeasement" charge against ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government in the state, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) star campaigner and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath asked why all terrorist attacks in India have their links to Hyderabad -- the stronghold of TRS ally - the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).
"If not for this Muslim appeasement, then it is revealed that a terror attack in any part of India has linked to Hyderabad," Yogi said while addressing a rally in Goshamahal. Asaduddin Owaisi Will be Forced to Leave Telangana if BJP Comes to Power: Yogi Adityanath.
The priest-politician also promised grand annual celebrations to mark the accession of the erstwhile Hyderabad kingdom into India in 1948, if the BJP is elected to power. "The people of Telangana want to celebrate the end of Nizam-era. But the TRS government does not want you to celebrate, fearing that their Muslim vote bank will get upset," the senior BJP leader said.
"The BJP assures you that we would celebrate the defeat of Nizam with grand fervour, similar to the manner in which he constructed the tallest statue to honour Sardar Patel," Yogi added.
Earlier in the day, while addressing a rally in Vikarabad, the Uttar Pradesh CM had promised a "Nizam-like" fate for Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, if the BJP gets elected to power in Telangana.
"If BJP comes to power I assure you Owaisi will have to flee from Telangana the same way Nizam was forced to flee from Hyderabad," he had said.
The minority appeasement charge against the TRS and the Congress was reiterated by BJP president Amit Shah as well. Specifically targeting the latter, Shah told a gathering in Mahbubnagar that it has released a "communal" manifesto. "The Congress has promised free electricity to mosques and churches, but not to temples," he said.
