HYDERABAD: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi slammed Union Minister Rajnath Singh, Centre for an answer to his question in LS on AN-32.

Owaisi took to Twitter, wherein he said, “AN-32 has a shelf life of 25 years, we’d acquired 99 AN32s in 1984 from USSR.” He added, “In 1999, India contracted with Ukraine for the upgradation of 54/99 aircrafts, while 45 were, erm, just forgotten about? The upgradation of these 45 was supposed to be completed by 2013, (SIC).”

Taking a potshot at PM for mentioning Shah Bano in Parliament, Owaisi asked why he could not talk about Tabrez Ansari, the victim of lynching in Jharkhand.

    Owaisi till recently had no clue of AN -32 Aircraft. All of a sudden he also has jumped into the bandwagon to make sure that he is not sidelined. It is nothing but politics !
