Demonetisation has caused havoc in every house: Asaduddin Owaisi

Demonetisation has caused havoc in every house: Asaduddin Owaisi

AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi has slammed the demonetisation move by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying it has caused havoc in every household. Owaisi was addressing a meeting organised on the occasion of Milad-un-Nabi at the party headquarters at Darus-salam in Hyderabad.

He also said the revolution that Modi was dreaming to bring about with the demonetisation step would never happen as it had pushed people into distress.


Terming Modi as a 'fakir', the MP wondered whether a fakir will ever wear Rs.15-lakh suit.

“What kind of a fakir you are who wears new clothes and new shawl with new style every day? What kind of fakir are you who wants to inconvenience the poor for 50 days and is not worried over the loss of 120 lives? You are not fakir; you are zalim (tyrant),” Owaisi said.

Referring to the gestures of Modi in public meetings that he addressed after the demonetisation, the MIM leader said: “He sometimes laughs, sometimes cries. He doesn’t know what he is doing. He says there is a threat to his life. We only pray that he live for 150 years.”

Citing the Hadith of Prophet Mohammed, Owaisi urged the Muslims to turn this crisis hour into an opportunity and ensure that no one in their neighbourhood, irrespective of religion or caste, remained hungry. He cautioned the ruling party at the Centre that those standing in queues at banks and ATMs today will stand in queues on the polling day to vote Modi out.

“You are in power today but tomorrow you will not be there. Many Prime Ministers came and left. You will also go,” the Hyderabad MP warned.
