In an address in Maharashtra's Bhiwandi on Saturday, Lok Sabha MP Asaduddin Owaisi took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said, "They are searching for PM's degree under the Taj Mahal."

This comes in light of the Taj Mahal controversy that erupted a couple of weeks ago. A petition was filed by a BJP leader to “find the truth” behind the 22 locked rooms in the Taj Mahal in Agra. The petition claimed that the mausoleum is actually an old Shiva temple.

On May 12, the Allahabad High Court dismissed the petition and said such things should be "left to historians".

All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi said that the BJP keeps talking about how Mughals came from outside India but so did several other communities from

different parts of the world. He said only Dravidians and Adivasis are indigenously from India.

"India is neither mine, nor Thackeray's, nor Modi-Shah's. If India belongs to anyone, it's Dravidians and Adivasis. BJP-RSS are only after the Mughals. But actually, India was formed after people migrated from Africa, Iran, Central Asia, East Asia."

Owaisi also took a dig at the Nationalist Congress Party, which is currently in power in Maharashtra in alliance with the Congress and Shiv Sena. He said, "In the assembly elections, NCP leaders were asking to vote for Owaisi so that BJP and Shiv Sena can be stopped. After the elections, NCP got married to Shiv Sena. I don't know who is the bride among the three parties."
