Critical of govt's stand on Afghanistan, Owaisi now wants invite to all party briefing

Hyderabad: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has said in a social media post that he is expecting an invitation to the Centre's  all-party meeting to brief leaders on the Afghanistan crisis.

On Tuesday morning, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar tweeted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had instructed the foreign ministry to brief floor leaders of political parties on the developments in Afghanistan.

Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Patel gave details of the meeting on Thursday and said in a tweet: "Invites are being sent through email."

Soon after, Owaisi responded with a tweet: "Sir I hope AIMIM will also be invited."

Owaisi has criticised the NDA government for its stand on Taliban.

"As per a report, one out of nine female children dies before age of 5 in India. There are atrocities and crimes against women here. But, they (Centre) are worried about what is happening to women in Afghanistan. Isn't it happening here," the Hyderabad MP said last week.

"When I was asked about Afghanistan, I said talk about Kanpur not Kabul. In Kanpur, a nine-year-old girl was begging for mercy when her father was being beaten up in the presence of police. These so-called human rights supporters are concerned about girls in Kabul and are talking about atrocities on women there but nobody is bothered about the Kanpur girl," he said, referring to the  victims of mob lynching.
