Govt has failed to provide basic facilities to Indian soldiers: Owaisi

MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday slammed the government saying that it has failed to provide basic facilities to Indian soldiers that live in inhumane conditions.

"The government is not bothered about giving basic facilities like uniforms to the Army and they are talking  about Digital India." Owaisi said while addressing his party's second rally at Kurla ahead of the BMC polls next month.

Owaisi statement came after a CRPF constable took to social media to drag attention of Prime Minister Modi over alleged discrimination between Indian Army and paramilitary forces.


Slamming the ruling Shiv Sena and BJP over the utilisation of the city's development funds, Owaisi said these parties have failed to provide basic civic amenities to the citizens.

He alleged that the elected representatives in Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) have misused the funds as there were no signs of development in any of the wards.

"People accuse me of giving hate speeches. However, if speaking truth and speaking against the government's malpractices is hate speech, then everyone should give hate speeches. We have cried for 70 years, but we won't let this continue," said the MIM chief.

"I was shaken by a report in a leading newspaper that how pregnant women were assaulted at the BMC hospitals by their staff while they were being operated. This is the condition of our civic hospitals. The civic body has allotted a budget of Rs 3,000 crore for the health sector. Sadly, all of the taxpayers money has gone down the drain," he said.
