HYDERABAD, Dec 5: AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday advised Congress President Rahul Gandhi to shed his arrogance, and learn humility and modesty from his mother Sonia Gandhi.
"If you are dreaming of becoming the Prime Minister, shed your arrogance. It is my humble request that you learn humility and sincerity from your mother. She has proved that simplicity takes a person far in politics," the Hyderabad MP said.
Owaisi was addressing election rallies of his All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) in the old city of Hyderabad on Tuesday night.
Dubbing Rahul Gandhi as younger brother of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Owaisi said the Congress President had nothing but still showing arrogance. "If this is your attitude, I will fight you throughout my life," he said.
The MP took strong exception to Rahul Gandhi describing him as the 'C' team of Modi.
"I am the captain of Hyderabad team and you are captain of Janedharu team. You tried insulting me by calling me 'C' team. This reflects the mentality of your upper caste because Janedharu considers himself superior to others."
Recalling that he supported Congress party for 12 years, Owaisi said Rahul should tell the people what secret deals he struck with his party. - IANS
