MIM President and MP Asaduddin Owaisi has alleged that all those who opposed Congress were being sent to jail. He said he and Y S Jaganmohan Reddy were sent to jail only because they opposed the ruling party.

Asaduddin came out of the Sangareddy jail after he got bail. Speaking to the media on the occasion, he has alleged that Congress was murdering democracy by joining hands with the BJP.

Asaduddin who was so far silent about his party’s association with Jagan and his YSR Congress, supported Jagan for the first time. It may be recalled that the YSR Congress also openly supported Asad when he was arrested. Party senior leaders Mysoora Reddy and Ummareddy Venkateswarlu condemned the Congress government for having Asad arrested for a 2005 case. They said it was nothing but a vindictive action as MIM snapped ties with the Congress. Now Asaduddin openly supported Jagan and stood by him. This indicates that there would be a close electoral alliance between the two parties in the 2014 elections.
