Asaduddin Owaisi's claim

Earlier in the day, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi sharing a news report called out the BJP government for failing to spare monthly allowance to the CRPF Jawans. His comments were based on reports claiming that the PM Modi government was affected by the economic crisis, causing a crunch in "ration allowance” of CRPF. He slammed the Home Ministry for the 'insult'. He also stated that nationalism could get votes, but not be eaten by parties.  

He said, "For large businesses, BJP gives a cash bonanza. For our brave CRPF personnel, Amit Shah can't spare 3k/month allowance. There cannot be a greater insult. This rhetoric of nationalism may get you votes but you cannot have it for dinner."
