EP 149 - BJP’s Madhavi Latha on Hyderabad Politics, Asaduddin Owaisi, Religion and Triple Talaq

ANI Podcast with Smita Prakash

Mar 24 2024 • 1 hr 42 mins

It's BJP's Madhavi Latha versus AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi. A long time RSS worker against a prominent Muslim leader will be taking on each other in Hyderabad. Madhavi Latha is not an active politician and does not belong to any political family. She is the first female candidate fielded by the BJP in Hyderabad. She is a social activist, Bharatnatyam dancer, and former NCC cadet, who is also running a Gaushala. She campaigned against Triple Talaq, while Owaisi claimed it to be unconstitutional, alleging that it demonizes Muslims.


AIMIM Chief has been winning the Hyderabad constituency since 2004, with the last victory margin being over 3 lakh votes. Is fielding Madhavi Latha from Hyderabad a lost cause? Or is this move part of the preparation for the 2029 election?


In the latest edition of the ANI Podcast with Smita Prakash, Madhavi Latha claims that children in Madrasas in Hyderabad are not getting food and they have become child laborers, with no future. She also alleges that bogus voting exists in the electoral rolls of the Hyderabad LS constituency.


She hits out at Owaisi, claiming that there has been no development in the area in the last 40 years and that temples and Hindu homes are being illegally occupied under Owaisi's nose. She also refutes the allegations of BJP being the 'B Team' of AIMIM.
