Asaduddin Owaisi not to support Kejriwal on Ordinance
I’m not going to support Kejriwal, because not just soft Hindutva, he follows hard Hindutva; Kejriwal to meet Stalin, Soren for support against Centre's ordinance
Hyderabad/New Delhi: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday said he won't support Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in his fight against a central ordinance as the AAP chief follows "hard Hindutva".
Kejriwal is seeking support from opposition leaders against the Centre's ordinance on the control of services in the national capital.
"Why did Kejriwal support BJP on Article 370? Why is he crying now? I’m not going to support Kejriwal, because not just soft Hindutva, he follows hard Hindutva," Owaisi said.
Kejriwal on Wednesday announced that he would be meeting his Tamil Nadu and Jharkhand counterparts to seek their support against the Centre's ordinance on the control of services.
Kejriwal shared this information in two tweets. He mentioned that he will meet Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin on June 1 followed by Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren on June 2.
The first tweet stated, "Will be meeting Tamil Nadu CM Thiru M K Stalin in Chennai tomorrow (1st June) to seek DMK's support against the Centre's unconstitutional and undemocratic 'Anti-Delhi' Ordinance."
Later, Kejriwal indicated that he is seeking support from Chief Ministers across the country and plans to meet more of them.
"On June 2, I will meet with the Chief Minister of Jharkhand, Mr. Hemant Soren, in Ranchi. I will seek his support against the ordinance passed by the Modi government, which is against the interests of the people of Delhi," read his second tweet.
