All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi slammed Modi-led Central Government for not taking appropriate action amid the second wave of COVID-19. He said, "Unfortunately, this is the consistent behaviour of the Modi government that they are clueless, they lack compassion, they have no direction, and they are not in control on how to control the second wave of COVID. It is not incompetence but lack of compassion on behalf of Modi government that 300 tonnes of foreign emergency aid is lying at Delhi airport. Why does it is taking 5 days to distribute those emergency aids to Delhi".
After West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee said she hailed from the 'Shandilya' lineage, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said political parties have always vying to prove who among them is the bigger Hindu and this is not good for a secular and democratic India. Owaisi said: "Throughout her election campaigning, Mamata Banerjee has been reciting Chandi Path and Durga Paths. Now she said that her Gotra is Shandliya and she is a Hindu Brahmin. If she is saying that she belongs to the upper caste in a state where 27 per cent are Muslims and 22 per cent are Dalits. Where should Muslims and Dalits of West Bengal go, who are not part of the 'varna' system? She's practicing PM Modi & BJP's politics of communalism. They are made for each other."
