All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday reacted to the Congress' 'minority declaration' in Telangana and said that the Congress Sadan should be renamed as 'RSS Anna'.

Coming down heavily on the Congress party, the AIMM chief said, "This Congress Sadan should be given a new name from today--RSS Anna. They announced that they would build a new city in Hyderabad and would make the Hyderabad Declaration. I have full faith that the person who has come from the RSS wants to devastate this area of ours, wants to vandalize it".

Ahead of the elections in Telangana, the Congress party announced 'minority declaration' and vowed that the party would work for the "financial upliftment and empowerment" of minorities in the state.

Further, in its declaration, the Congress promised to "conduct a caste census within the first six months of

assuming power". It also underlined its commitment to raising the budget for minorities' welfare to Rs 4,000 crore while also promising a dedicated 'sub-plan' for Muslims.

Also, in its manifesto for the Telangana Assembly polls on November 30, the Congress stated that Rs 1,000 crore per annum will be allocated to provide subsidised loans for jobless minority youth and women. The party also promised a 'Telangana Sikh Minority Finance Corporation', adding that it will provide a yearly corpus of Rs 5 lakh to Muslim, Christian, and Sikh youth on the completion of MPhil and PhD, under the 'Abdul Kalam Taufa-e-Taleem' scheme.

The Congress also proposed other benefits for minorities under the 'commitment to education and employment equity', 'protection of religious rights and culture', 'infrastructure and welfare, and 'promotion of inclusivity and growth'.
