Hyderabad: Former minister and ex-Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir on Wednesday has accused Home Minister Mahmood Ali of misleading the Muslim community just to secure votes in Huzurnagar Assembly by-election.

Shabbir Ali, in a media statement, alleged that the Home Minister was highly ignorant on the subject of minorities' welfare.

Referring to Mahmood Ali's speech in Huzurnagar wherein he claimed that TRS government was secular and K Chandrashekhar Rao was a pro-minority Chief Minister, he said Mahmood Ali was openly cheating his community by hiding the truth.

He said Mahmood Ali was personally indebted to Chandrashekhar Rao for making him deputy chief minister in the first term and now the Home Minister, but he was wrong in claiming that he was the first Muslim in the country to enjoy a top position.

He pointed out that the Congress party got Zakir Hussain and Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed elected to the post of Presidents of India. Several Muslims were elevated to the post of Vice Presidents of India, Governors and Union Ministers.

The Congress leader questioned Mahmood Ali's silence on the issue of 12 percent Muslim quota which KCR had promised in April 2014. Rao had assured to implement it within four months after coming to power but did nothing even after six years.
