HYDERABAD: Reacting to a report that the Central government was planning to export anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine to the US, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi criticised the move and said that the medicine is barely available in Hyderabad and Aurangabad.

Owaisi in a tweet said, “This medicine is hardly available in the bigger medical shops of Hyderabad and Aurangabad and Modi govt takes this decision. I hope the government has taken into consideration about the availability for Indians, did govt speak to experts or is it their trademark HASTY Decision (sic)”

Owaisi also said that the move by the Central government to reduce pension by MPs was inspired by CM K Chandrasekhar Rao’s decision in the State. “It is good that @PMOIndia is replicating the decisions taken by @ TelanganaCMO KCR a week ago.”

Stay home, request health officials and AIMIM MLAs

    I used to followw this guy owaisi in the past as he seemed sometimes logical. But of late I see him just making remarks and trying to fent trouble. For me he has finally gone to the dark side. I would have hoped he served a constructive opposition instead of a sell out
