Hyderabad: The country is celebrating Independence today with great fanfare. Independence Day is celebrated everywhere. The tricolour has also been hoisted today by the Chief of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) and The Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi. The tricolour was hoisted by Owaisi at Madina Chowk in Hyderabad on the 73rd anniversary of Independence and a large number of his supporters were also present.
Assaduddin Owaisi also addressed the people present there and extended Independence Day greetings to all. Asaduddin Owaisi often addresses small meetings around the square and appeared to be the same on the occasion of independence celebrations.
In the past, Assaduddin Owaisi had attacked the Modi government on the Jammu and Kashmir issue. He has consistently targeted the Modi government and termed the weakening of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir as unconstitutional. Not only that, he has also demanded that Section 144 should be removed from Kashmir at the earliest and the phone facility should be started there.
