Tikait stated this whereas addressing a ‘Maha Dharna’ organised by All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC)-Telangana unit in Hyderabad to mark one yr of the countrywide agitation by the farmers towards the three agri legal guidelines.
His veiled jibe got here on the backdrop of Owaisi’s determination to contest Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections slated in early 2022.

In a barely completely different stand, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath not too long ago termed Owaisi as an ‘agent’ of the Samajwadi Party. He stated that Owaisi was making an attempt to instigate individuals by changing into an agent of Akhilesh Yadav’s celebration.
