Speaking at a rally in Hyderabad on Sunday, Akbaruddin said, "I have seen on Twitter where the names have become as 'Chowkidar Narendra Modi', 'Chowkidar Amit Shah'. Why only on Twitter? He should also mention 'Chowkidar' in his Aadhaar card, voter-id and passport."

"We want a prime minister not a 'Chaiwala','Pakodewala'...I am surprised at those who vote for Modi, what kind of person they vote for? If Modi is so interested in being a 'Chowkidar', he should come to me, I will offer him a Chowkidar's cap and a whistle," he said.

Akbaruddin had won from the Chandrayangutta Assembly seat in the 2018 Assembly polls in Telangana. In December 2018, Akbaruddin was elected as floor leader of AIMIM in the Telangana Legislative Assembly.
