Asaduddin Owaisi’s ‘Awas Yojana’ remarks refuted

  • Telangana BJP leader N V Subhash says Centre will take necessary measures to safeguard nation’s sovereignty and territorial integrity
  • It’s nothing but a ploy of AIMIM to attain entity in the WB polls

Hyderabad: AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi over alleged reports of China constructing a new village under ‘Awas Yojana’ bordering Arunachal Pradesh, N V Subhash Telangana BJP leader came down heavily stating that he need not worry for border issues as the Centre will take necessary measures to safeguard nation’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. 

Mr Subhash in a statement on Tuesday said keeping eye on the elections in West Bengal Owaisi was trying to grab the attention of the people by criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Owaisi was overreacting to the media reports as they mentioned that the village in the Upper Subansiri district of Arunachal Pradesh lies nearly 4.5 km from the Indian territory. However, the Indian government would teach a befitting reply to China. On the other hand, the Minister of External Affairs stated that China has undertaken such construction activities long ago and the Indian government has also stepped up border infrastructure including the construction of roads, bridges and other activities to ensure connectivity to the local people along the border, he added. 

Subhash said the AIMIM leader repeating the old media reports by making it relevant to the present situation. He reiterated that the government was keeping a constant vigil to protect the territorial integrity of the country and advised Owaisi not to use issues with bordering countries for his political agenda.  

The Telangana BJP leader said at the recent meeting of Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination of India-China Border Affairs (WMCC) has reviewed the situation and both countries have agreed to work towards a total disengagement as per the agreements reached earlier. He alleged that the AIMIM leader was raking up unnecessary issues to get political mileage in the ensuing elections in West Bengal. Linking the name of Prime Minister for the political entity in West Bengal was a ploy of Asaduddin Owaisi to get at least 5 seats in the ensuing elections like in Bihar, he remarked.
