Gonda, Feb 15: Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Lok Sabha MP from Kaiserganj Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh has said All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi was ‘Kshatriya’ (Hindu) earlier.
“Owaisi is an old friend of mine. As far as I know, he was ‘Kshatriya’ (Hindu) earlier. He is a descendent of Lord Ram, not the one belonging to Iran,” said Singh.
Singh made the following comments on Monday while campaigning for his son and BJP candidate from Gonda, Prateek Bhushan Singh.
Two phases of polls for Uttar Pradesh Assembly have concluded, while the state still has another five phases of polling to go. The counting of votes will take place on March 10.
