Asaduddin Owaisi, the President of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) recently reacted to Yogi Adityanath's statement blaming the Mughals and the Britishers for the weakening Indian economy. The leader exclaiming that Adityanath does not have the necessary knowledge to pass such statements. The CM of UP, Yogi Adityanath, had earlier referred to the slow economic growth as the ‘Hindu rate of growth’ and stated that it was a mistake on the part of the economists. The CM had made a statement where he said that by the time the Mughals left the country and the Brishter’s came, India’s economy worsened. He further blamed the British for bringing the economy down. The AIMIM President slammed the CM stating that he is 'lucky' to be the CM of UP. Owaisi further questioned what the BJP has done in the last six years for the country.
The AIMIM President has left no stones unturned to bash CM Adityanath. He stated that the CM has no knowledge of any subject further explaining that an expert should only be consulted in such cases. In the past, he has criticised the Yogi Government after a video surfaced of the school kids consuming roti and salt for their midday meal. The UP Government had registered a case against the journalist for posting the video of the school children. Owaisi condemned the incident stating that the journalist fraternity should boycott the UP Government for taking such a step.
Asaduddin Owaisi has been known to be a strong critic when it comes to expressing his opinions. In another instance, the President of the AIMIM slammed Donald Trump, the President of the US. Owaisi, speaking on Trump, had said that the US President has not studied much, which is why he has very little knowledge of India or the world. He further added that if he would have known the facts, then he would not have made such a statement. The US President had earlier called PM Narendra Modi the 'Father of India’ which had agitated Owaisi.
