Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma
New Delhi: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma targeted the Mughals, Nizams and the Owaisi clan in Telangana on Sunday. Addressing party workers in Warangal, Sarma said that the history of India says that Babur, Aurangzeb, and Nizam cannot live long.
“The way Article 370 was scrapped, construction of Ram Mandir began, here also Nizam’s name, Owaisi’s name will be written off. That day is not very far,” he said.
I am sure that the legacy of Nizam will come to an end and a new culture based on Indian civilization will emerge, the firebrand Assam CM further stated.
Saying that dictatorship will not work in Telangana, Sarma said that whenever a dictator becomes Chief Minister or Prime Minister an emergency-like situation arises in the country.
We have to keep fighting and it will result in the creation of a new Telangana, he added.
Reacting to Sarma’s speech, TRS MLA and the daughter of K. Chandrashekar Rao Kalvakuntla Kavithayour said that the BJP is threatened with the idea of unity.
“Your remarks today once again restated the intent of BJP to erase the glorious history of Telangana. I wonder, why you & your party are so threatened with the idea of unity? Did you forget the verdict of Telangana in 2018, where BJP lost deposits on 107 seats,” she tweeted.
Responding to this, Sarma defended his remarks by saying he only spoke about unifying modern-day Telangana and linking it with the glory of Bharat Varsha.
“Also, to remind you, BJP once upon a time won just 2 Lok Sabha seats, but now the example is in front of you,” he tweeted.
Earlier in December 2020, Union Home Minister Amit Shah had targeted the Nizam while campaigning for the BJP and asked voters to give BJP an opportunity to free Hyderabad from “Nawabi and Nizami culture”.
Reacting to this, Nawab Najaf Ali Khan – the grandson of the seventh Nizam of Hyderabad Nawab Mir Osman Ali Khan – said that politicians should seek votes by working for the public and not by running a negative narrative against Nizam VII.
He further termed Shah’s promise of renaming the city or promising to free Hyderabad from “Nizam culture” a political gimmick.
Issuing a statement, Nawab Najaf Ali Khan said that no one can change the Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb adding that it has been a part of the culture of the people of Hyderabad for centuries.
“My grandfather not only respected all religions but also united them during his regime. During his reign, Hyderabad was better than most western countries and no other ruler in all of history can match his massive donations,” said the Nawab Najaf Ali Khan.
