He criticised BJP leaders for their statements against the Old City and made a satirical comment that all other political parties are his majnus and he is 'Laila'. He said that, "Dekhiye mera haal aisa hai na ke main Laila hun aur mere hazaron Majnu hain." On Sunday, Amit Shah campaigned in Hyderabad ahead of GHMC polls 2020.
