Lucknow, Dec, 3: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen supremo Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday targetted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s statement.
A BJP CM said he’ll make us flee, should we not say anything to the PM? Has the PM proclaimed himself as a god?

“He’s a democratically elected leader and criticizing him is a constitutional right”, the AIMIM Chief added.
Earlier in the day, Owaisi questioned Adityanath’s role as the Chief Minister of a state and accused Adityanath of ignoring his state.
The sharp rebuttal came a day after the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said that Owaisi will have to flee Hyderabad ‘much like the Nizam had.’
Adityanath made the remark while addressing a rally in Vikarabad’s Tandur in Telangana on Sunday.
“If BJP comes to power I assure you Owaisi will have to flee from Telangana the same way Nizam was forced to flee from Hyderabad”, he had said.
