All India Majilis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday criticised the political parties for taking the issue of alleged misuse of central probe agencies to the Supreme Court and said the outcome has given the ruling BJP an opportunity to justify the action. Owaisi said that the opposition parties should have taken it to the masses and explained it to them how the Bharatiya Janata Party are “settling scores by using agencies”.

As many as 14 political parties, led by the Congress, had jointly filed a petition in the Supreme Court alleging arbitrary use of central probe agencies against opposition leaders and sought a fresh set of guidelines governing their arrest and remand. The apex court refused to entertain the plea asserting that laying down guidelines without facts of a criminal case will be


When asked about his reaction on Supreme Court's refusal to entertain the plea, Owaisi said, “This was a wrong step. This is not a correct way of doing politics when we are facing a formidable opponent like BJP headed by Narendra Modi.”

"The opposition parties going to the Supreme Court was an unwise decision. Now, this has given BJP an opportunity to say that ‘whatever we are doing Supreme Court is supporting us’," the Lok Sabha member said.

“This should have been taken to the masses and explained that this is what BJP is doing, they are settling scores by using agencies. But a wrong decision was taken. If you take a wrong legal decision, the (court's) decision will come which will benefit, unfortunately, the ruling party only.”
