Hyderabad: BJP leader T Raja Singh on Sunday (June 2) accused the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi of "financially supporting" the terrorists while stating that the BJP would win the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency in 2024 and would also mark the results as "The end for Owaisi."

Speaking to media, Raja Singh said, "Asaduddin Owaisi is supporting terrorists financially and today in his constituency more than 7000 Muslims from different nations are living. People are against Owaisi in the old city because he has not done anything for the old city."

The BJP leader further said that he is sure that in 2024 Lok Sabha election, BJP would win the Hyderabad Parliamentary seat and it will be the end for Owaisi.

This  comment came after the Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy sparked a controversy by saying, "Wherever in the county, a terrorist attack happens, its roots are found in Hyderabad." He also called Hyderabad as "a terror safe zone."

Reacting to Reddy's statement, Owaisi had said, "He has spoken in a disgraceful manner even before taking charge. Irresponsibly talking like this does not suit a minister. But we expect them to talk like this because wherever they (BJP) see Muslims, they see terrorists."

Supporting the statement made by Kishan Reddy, Raja Singh said, "'I support the statement of BJP MP Kishan Reddy because last time when a bomb blast occurred in Hyderabad, people who were accused in that bomb blast were also from his consistency. If we take the Gujarat Haren Pandya case, the accused were from his consistency, and 12 ISIS terrorists have also been caught from his constituency."
