Hyderabad: AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi who has always criticised against the Centre and its activities. Owaisi on Wednesday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has violated the oath of office by laying the foundation stone of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
“India is a secular country. Prime Minister has violated the oath of the office by laying the foundation stone of Ram Mandir. This is the day of the defeat of democracy and secularism and success of Hindutva,” Owaisi told reporters.
“The Prime Minister today said he was emotional. I want to say that I am also equally emotional because I believe in coexistence and equality of citizenship. Mr Prime Minister, I am emotional because a mosque stood there for 450 years,” he said.
This is not the first time Owaisi has been critical of PM Modi. Earlier in an interview with Outlook Magazine he had said that PM Modi must refrain from going to the event, otherwise the people will believe that the Prime Minister is supporting only faith in the country.
