Earlier today, Owaisi had lauded TRS chief K. Chandrashekhar Rao for retaining power in Telangana, and stressed on the need for India to have a 'non BJP and a non-Congress government' in the centre.
"K. Chandrashekhar Rao has all the capabilities and capacities to ensure that a non-Congress government comes into existence when the next parliament election takes place. This country requires a non-Congress and a non-BJP government," he said.
Meanwhile, KCR, who will take charge as the Chief Minister, told the media: "In the next six months, we will work for poor people, employment for youth and addressing minority issues. I have seen that there were some problems during the election time. We will clear those problems in the next six months. We will help all those who are struck by poverty irrespective of their caste."
