PM Modi Calls For All-Party Meet On Govt’s COVID-19 Action Plan, Excludes AIMIM; Owaisi Calls It An Insult

Hyderabad MP and All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief said that his party’s exclusion from participation in the all-party meet with PM Modi on COVID-19 was an insult to the people of Hyderabad and Aurangabad, the two Lok Sabha constituencies represented by it.

Reaching out to the Opposition amid the ongoing nationwide lockdown due to coronavirus, Modi will, for the first interact with floor leaders of various parties on the government’s action plan via a video conference on April 8.

In a tweet, tagging the official handle of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), he questioned whether the people of Aurangabad and Hyderabad were lesser humans because they chose the AIMIM.

“As MPs it’s our job to represent to you, the economic and humanitarian misery of our people,” he said.

Owaisi said he wanted to give suggestions on the fight against COVID-19 as Hyderabad at present had 93 active cases. “I want to put forth our ideas on how we can fight this pandemic and identify areas where we’re lacking,” he added.

In Telangana, the COVID-19 cases continue to rise with 43 people testing positive on Saturday, taking the state’s tally to 272.
