Hyderabad, Oct 25: AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday accused Prime Minister rendra Modi of making triple ‘talaq’ and Ram temple the core issues of the BJP campaign to polarise voters ahead of assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh and four other states. A day after Modi spoke on the triple talaq issue, Owaisi told reporters here that Modi is talking of polarising issues to get votes (for the BJP), instead of focusing on constructive issues.
“As the matter of triple ‘talaq’ is pending before the Supreme Court, it would have been in the fitness of things that the Prime Minister had not spoken on it. However, the development clearly shows that the Bharatiya Jata Party and Modi are short of constructive ideas.” The Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad said he wanted to know why the Prime Minister was not making election issues of governce, corruption and interl fighting in the (Mulayam Singh) Yadav family in Uttar Pradesh. Advising Modi and his party not to malign Muslims, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader wondered why was the Prime Minister silent on the fact that compared with Muslims, other religious communities had high rate of divorce and seperation.
