Hyderabad: Predicting early elections for Parliament following the Karnataka poll verdict, AIMIM President and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi thanked Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao for proposing a new political front to bring qualitative change in Indian politics. He observed that the Karnataka Assembly results had brought down Muslim representation in the Assembly which is a cause of concern for every political party which believes in diversity and pluralism.

In a series of tweets, Owaisi felt that the BJP was likely to opt for early elections following the Karnataka results and the proposed political front by Chief Minister Chandrashekhar Rao could be the need of the hour to stall the right-wing forces.

“I am of the opinion that Parliament elections will be held in November. BJP has seen the writing on the wall,” he said.

The AIMIM chief was referring to K Chandrashekhar Rao’s call to bring qualitative change in national politics and build a national coalition of political forces to ensure rapid development of the country. Rao also has been vocal about implementing the federal system in true spirit where the ruling party running the Central government will not intervene in the affairs of the State government and instead, support the latter’s endeavours.

Asaduddin Owaisi also congratulated JDS Chief Ministerial candidate HD Kumaraswamy for his party’s victory and felt that the latter will discharge his constitutional responsibility in a better way as compared to other predecessors promoting progress of Karnataka under his leadership. He said continuous tirade against him and his party by his political opponents (BJP), makes him more determined to achieve the party’s political objectives.
