Owaisi dares Amit Shah to contest against him from HyderabadMay 25, 2017 23:22
Asaduddin Owaisi has dared BJP president Amit Shah to contest from Hyderabad Lok Sabha seat, saying it is not as easy as "eating cake".
Owaisi, the sitting MP from Hyderabad, said his party would ensure that the BJP lost from Secunderabad Lok Sabha constituency, held by Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya, and five assembly seats the saffron party has in the city.
"You (BJP) want to contest Hyderabad....you are welcome. But why are you planning to field somebody else? You (Shah) come and contest.
Ridiculing Shah's claim that BJP would form its government in Telangana after the 2019 assembly elections, Owaisi said, "You are dreaming".
"God willing, we will ensure BJP loses Secunderabad and also the five assembly seats held by them," he said.
