Owaisi, Shah lock horns in Lok Sabha

New Delhi: All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi had a face-off with Home Minister Amit Shah in Lok Sabha on Monday during a discussion on the NIA (Amendment) Bill. The spat between the two leaders began when opposition members, including Owaisi, started interrupting BJP MP Satyapal Singh. 

Owaisi objected to the claim by Singh that a State leader had asked the then Hyderabad Police Commissioner to change the course of probe in a particular case. Singh said he knew it because he was then posted as Police Commissioner of Mumbai.

Owaisi objected to this and demanded for records related to the case to be placed. On this, Shah stood up and said the treasury bench had not disturbed members of the opposition when they spoke and hence they should also be not disturbed. Shah pointed at Owaisi and said members of the opposition should have patience to listen others.

This seemed to have provoked Owaisi as he asked Shah not to point fingers at him. But Shah hit back saying he was not trying to frighten him and rather just stating that Opposition leaders should have patience to listen to the counter-view.
