Akbaruddin Owaisi, the brother of AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi and an assembly poll candidate from Chandrayangutta, brazenly threatened a police inspector during a campaign rally in Hyderabad. The incident began when the police inspector asked Owaisi to follow the Model Code of Conduct by restricting the length of his speech.
Details of the incident:
Despite surpassing the allocated time under the Model Code of Conduct, Akbaruddin Owaisi refused to cut short his speech at Lalitabagh in Hyderabad. When the police inspector insisted on compliance, Owaisi publicly threatened him, implying that if the inspector signaled his supporters, he would be compelled to “run” from the location.
During his address, Akbaruddin Owaisi said, “Do you think I got weak after facing knives and bullets? I still have a lot of courage in me.” There are five minutes remaining, and I will address five minutes, no one can stop me. If I give you a signal, you’ll have to go; shall we force him to run?” This statement has generated concerns about law enforcement officials being intimidated throughout the election campaign.
Constituency of Chandrayangutta:
Akbaruddin Owaisi is running from the AIMIM-dominated Chandrayangutta constituency. In the past two Telangana Assembly elections, in 2014 and 2018, the party won this segment. The district is projected to be a significant battleground in the forthcoming elections.
Telangana Assembly Elections:
Voters in Telangana will go to the polls on November 30, with results expected on December 3. The state is being contested by the BJP, the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), and the Congress. The BRS won 88 out of 119 seats in the last Assembly elections in 2018, garnering a significant vote percentage.
Electoral Campaign Controversy:
The event adds to the controversy and tensions that have characterized Telangana’s election campaign. As the state approaches the election, political parties and leaders are being scrutinized for their remarks and behavior.
Akbaruddin Owaisi’s blatant threat raises concerns about the climate surrounding the Telangana voting process. The event is sure to spark debate on the need of maintaining decorum, according to the Model Code of Conduct, and safeguarding the safety of law enforcement officers throughout election season.
