The Hyderabad MP said his party considered SP and BJP as its main rival in 2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections."Our fight is against both SP and BJP. These parties are two sides of the same coin," he said.
On administration in the state capital "imposing" a ban on his rally, Owaisi said "RSS chief Bhagwat has got the freedom, but ban is being imposed on us because in reality, the SP government is afraid of us."

Owaisi was scheduled to visit Lucknow along with Faizabad, Azamgarh and Ambedkarnagar earlier this month. He was also scheduled to address a rally in Lucknow but was refused permission by the administration citing law and order issues.
After that, Owaisi's entire Uttar Pradesh tour was cancelled. The AIMIM chief alleged that SP and BJP were solely responsible for Muzaffarnagar riots but those responsible were given a "clean chit" in the inquiry report.
