AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi has once again targeted the Modi government. Owaisi said that as earlier senior journalists covered the Kargil war, why does PM Modi not take the media to Ladakh and Depsang Valley.
Ordinances against conversion to BJP-ruled states violate constitution: Owaisi
Let us tell you that earlier Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday accused the BJP-led state governments of bringing an ordinance against wrongful conversion, claiming that they violate the fundamental rights provided under the Constitution. Describing the new agricultural laws of the central government as ‘stringent’, Owaisi challenged the Narendra Modi government to introduce employment related laws, which guarantee minimum support price (MSP) to farmers.

He said that any adult can marry whomever he wants, and the BJP’s intention to bring such laws against conversion is to ridicule the Constitution. He was referring to the implementation of an ordinance brought against the forced conversion by the Uttar Pradesh government and the approval of a similar law by the Madhya Pradesh government’s cabinet on Tuesday.
Owaisi told reporters that the BJP is creating an atmosphere of hatred against the Muslim community. He said that such laws are a clear violation of Articles 14, 21 and 25 of the constitution which are related to right to equality, right to life and personal liberty and right to religious freedom respectively.
The Hyderabad MP said that I challenge the BJP why they do not make laws on giving MSP to farmers, which is the need of the hour. For the past few weeks, thousands of farmers have been protesting against these laws of the Modi government on the borders of Delhi. He claimed that instead of doing so, he (BJP) is bringing these ordinances against conversion. Owaisi said in response to a question that his party will contest elections whether local bodies elections are held in Madhya Pradesh or elections in Gujarat or other states.
