Owaisi tweets on Army Chief; on the latter’s comment on rise of political party
Known for being outspoken, the AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday criticized General Bipin Rawat for talking about the rise of Maulana Badruddin Ajmal-led AIUDF (All India United Democratic Front) in Assam.
He said that the Army chief need not interfere in political matters and it is not his purview to comment on rise of a political party.
In a tweet, Owaisi also reminded General Rawat that the Army will always work under an elected civilian leadership in India.
It need be recalled that underlining that the population dynamics of the North-East region can no longer be changed, the Army chief on Wednesday referred to the faster pace of growth of AIUDF in Assam.
The Army chief made the comment while speaking at a seminar on ‘North East Region of India — Bridging Gaps and Securing Borders’, organized by the Centre for Joint Warfare Studies and Headquarters Integrated Defence Staff of the Ministry of Defence.
Meanwhile, Aminul Islam, AIUDF MLA said that their party is working for the downtrodden and that’s why AIUDF’s popularity is growing faster than BJP.
The AIUDF, which was formed in 2005 with an aim to champion the cause of Muslim community, currently has three parliamentarians in Lok Sabha and 13 legislators in the state assembly. >
