Congress files complaint against Asaduddin Owaisi to Telangana SEC


Hyderabad: The state Congress unit on Thursday registered a complaint against AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi to the state Election Commission.

Marri Shashidhar Reddy, Chairman of TPCC Election Commission Coordination Committee has written a letter to the state Election Commission of Telangana stating violation of Model Code of Conduct for Municipal elections by Owaisi. He urged Telangana State Election Commission to book a case against him and issue a notice to him.

Addressing a public gathering in Sangareddy district on Monday, the AIMIM leader took a jibe at the Congress by saying that, “People in Congress have a lot of money, take it from them. You’ll be getting it due to me. Just vote for me. If they are giving you (money) then take it. I say to Congress to raise the rate, my price is not Rs 2,000 only. I am worth more than that.”
