Asaduddin Owaisi was born on 13th May 1969 in Hyderabad.
It is the city of pearls which evokes one of the many things, including the well-known Charminar. It has also been listed as one of the best cities in India to reside. But, a walk below the old part of the city unveils a contradictory image.
Hyderabad is not in good condition as it seems
For a very long time, Hyderabad has been divided into two sections. The new city, which has all the latest facilities. Simultaneously the old town that looks ‘ancient’ and is in a dismal situation. This section, coming under the Hyderabad parliament constituency, has a predominant Muslim community. People here do not even have proper drinking water and sanitation facilities. Roads are also in terrible shape.
A man trading fruits nearby the Charminar said there is no visible change in the old part of the city for the last 20 years. “Even the roads not repaired. My 12-year-old son works in a hotel as a cleaner,”. A nearby tea seller said he lived with his family of five in a single room for years. And all the family members were employed as laborers.
“As they say, the old city is far from development. Here, people have remained uneducated and political leaders are responsible for this. They did not even allow the metro rail here. The citizens here are used as voting machines,” Prasanna Kumar, a social activist, stated in a report.
Allegation on Asaduddin Owaisi
Many politicians blamed AIMIM for not permitting the metro rail to reach the old city. It is stopping development in the state. Though, for the prior three-and-a-half decades, the Hyderabad Lok Sabha seat has endured with the AIMIM. From 1984 to 2004, Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi was the MP, and since 2004, his son AIMIM chief Asaduddin have been serving the seat in the Lower House of Parliament.
For the fourth time in a row, Asaduddin re-elected from the constituency. Although many allegations on Asaduddin that AIMIM never endeavored development, it craved the old city’s people to reside in the darkness. However, other politicians have made many other serious allegations.
In a media statement, Greater Hyderabad Congress Committee Minorities Department Chairman Abdullah Sohail said that the Darussalam Educational Trust formed in 1974 to uplift the Muslim community’s educational uplift. However, he alleged that the MIM leaders have turned the Trust into a personal asset and reduced it to a dummy institution. He said that the Trust had established several educational institutions with the money contributed by the Muslim community.
“Instead of imparting free education to poor Muslims through DET, the MIM leaders misused it for personal gains. Presently, all the institutions run by DET is turned into commercial establishments. Seats in Deccan Medical, Engineering and other institutions sold for a premium,”.
Owaisi brother’s Assets are increasing at an unexpected rate
Abdullah Sohail alleged that the MIM heads sidetracked crores of rupees related to the DET to their personal and benami accounts Darulsalaam Cooperative Bank. He designated the legal assets in his election testimony. It shows an expansion of assets in ten times in just ten years. While Asaduddin Owaisi had assets of Rs. 39 lakhs in 2004. In 2009 it revealed to be Rs. 93 lakhs. They doubled to Rs 4 crore in 2014.
Thus, Chandrayangutta MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi had announced Rs. 8 crore assets in 2009, which doubled in just five years. In the 2014 elections, Akbaruddin had stated assets of Rs. 17 crore.
“How Owaisi brothers acquired so much wealth in such a little period?” questioned to Owaisi. And so he declared that the accumulated assets are from the money that goes to DET.
