HYDERABAD — Asaduddin Owaisi, Chief of All India Majlise Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) and Lok Sabha MP from Hyderabad, in a recent speech during an Eid Milan party here appealed people to pray for the health of his brother Akbaruddin Owaisi, party leader and MLA from Chandrayangutta, who is not keeping well since long.
Akbaruddin who was ailing since long due to a knife attack on him has been shifted to London in an emergency for better treatment as his condition deteriorated recently, Asaduddin Owaisi disclosed this during a party meeting held on Sunday.
In December 2018, Akbaruddin was admitted to the Owaisi Hospital and Research Centre after he complained of severe stomach ache. Doctors pointed out that he had not been keeping well since the attack on his life in 2011 in Barkas, when he was shot in the stomach and sustained several knife injuries, according to reports.
Akbaruddin Owaisi was quoted saying in a media report that it was becoming difficult for him to contest elections as his health was in a delicate state. And this could also prevent him from contesting elections in the future.
