Four ruling Congress leaders in Prakasam district on Saturday pressed for action against All India Majilis-E-Itihadul Muslimeen MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi for his ‘hate speech’.

Party District OBC Cell Chairman Veerabhadrachari and party-led Seva Dal district leader Koppolu Subba Rao told reporters here the state Government should take immediate action against the AIMIM MLA and uphold the secular fabric of the nation.

The AIMIM leader with his highly objectionable speech had violated the spirit of the constitution, said party minorities wing leader Sk.Nazeer Ahamad.
