Slug­ging it out

Hindustan Times (Patna) - - NATION -

The all-party meet­ing on Te­lan­gana last week saw a fiery ex­change be­tween MIM pres­i­dent Asadud­din Owaisi and Andhra Pradesh chief min­is­ter Ki­ran Ku­mar Reddy. The two have been at log­ger­heads since the ex­pan­sion of the Bhagya Lak­shmi tem­ple that is lo­cated at the base of Hy­der­abad’s fa­mous Charmi­nar mon­u­ment. The ex­pan­sion had prompted Owaisi to with­draw his party’s sup­port to the Congress in the state and the UPA at the Cen­tre. At the all-party meet­ing, Owaisi took the op­por­tu­nity to at­tack Reddy and at one point the two were heard shout­ing at each other. Home min­is­ter Sushilku­mar Shinde had to in­ter­vene to con­trol the sit­u­a­tion by ask­ing Owaisi to con­fine his speech to Te­lan­gana and Reddy to lis­ten pa­tiently.
