Look at socio-economic indicators of UP Muslims: Owaisi retorts to Yogi's 'Abba Jaan' remark

Sep 15, 2021 12:23 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Amid the battle for Uttar Pradesh election 2022, AIMIM chief Asadudin Owaisi has hit out at chief minister Yogi Adityanath over the saffron leader's contentious 'Abba Jaan' remark.

Owaisi, the Lok Sabha MP, accused the BJP leader of lying and countered Yogi's 'appeasement' narrative while pointing out that Muslims in UP fared dismally on most socio-economic indicators including education and health.

In a tweet, Owaisi wrote there is a 60% dropout rate among Muslims in Uttar Pradesh, 2% of Muslims are graduates and 3% pass the 12th standard exam.

The Hyderabad-based leader asked Yogi what did he do to control the dropout rate of Muslims? 

Stating that only 10 Muslims were sanctioned houses under the PM Awas Yojana in 2017-18, the AIMIM supremo contended that Adityanath was trying to seek validation of a certain community in the garb of playing politics on 'Abba Jaan'.

Owaisi, whose AIMIM is making assembly election debut in UP, wrote a total of 2277 posts of doctors are lying vacant in the state and if Yogi had done work, he would not have been compelled to shout 'Abba, Abba'".
