HYDERABAD: Hyderabad MP and AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday blamed BJP MLA Raja Singh for the turn of events in the Old City and the consequent police crackdown. He also condemned the police action barging into houses using force and rounding up youths, which he termed as 'unacceptable'.
In a series of tweets, he reacted to the developments in the Old City. While expressing the feeling that the Goshamahal legislator be sent to jail at the earliest, he renewed his appeal to the general public to maintain peace.
"Hyderabad is our home. It should not fall prey to communalism", he said in one of his tweets.
The AIMIM chief was also quick to inform that about 90 youths, rounded up from Shalibanda and Asha Talkies areas, were released upon his personal intervention.
His tweet read: "On my representation to DCP, South, 90 protesting youth from Shah Ali Banda & Asha Talkies have been released. AIMIM MLA Ahmed bin Abdullah Balala & our corporators have been working all night to de-escalate the situation. I have been in touch with them & police too".
