Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi hits back at Mamata Banerjee after her recent minority extremist remarks on the leader on Tuesday.

Mamata Banerjee said in an event addressing a rally in the district bordering Bangladesh, which faces a major issue related to illegal immigrants, that extremists were emerging from the minorities. The speech indirectly accused Asaduddin Owaisi of taking money from BJP who is spreading this extremist ideology among the people. Owaisi, the chief of the AIMIM or All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, countered back calling her out as an actual extremist who let BJP enter Bengal and for looking down on the Muslims of the state. He also said that her remarks are making Owaisi's party look like a formidable force in the state and that it is Mamata Banerjee's fear and frustration that is speaking.

"If Didi is worried about a bunch of us 'from Hyderabad' then she should tell us how the BJP won 18 of 42 Lok Sabha seats in Bengal," Mr Owaisi posted speaking of the Lok Sabha elections results that saw BJP winning seats in Bengal. Twitter shared their reactions on the same.
