Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan received a huge backlash on social media after he was caught in camera hurling abuses in front of school kids in UP’s Rampur district. A video surfaced online has gone viral, shows a controversial SP leader who can be seen getting annoyed at the traffic while sitting in his car, after which he hurled abuses in front of children on the way.
Reportedly, a tractor turned upside-down on the way because of which Azam Khan’s car got stuck in the traffic. He was then caught on camera shouting and hurling abuses in front of the children, which is deemed contrary to the spirit of human values.
The video came to light only hours after the Election Commission sent one more notice to Azam Khan demanding answers on his “highly objectionable” speeches in several parts of Rampur during the Lok Sabha elections.
“Your explanation shall be submitted within 24 hours of the receipt of this Notice, failing which the Commission shall take a decision without further reference to you,” the notice said.
Before this notice, the poll body forced a 72-hour prohibition on his election campaigning for his disgraceful “khaki-underpants” remark against BJP candidate Jaya Prada. He has been prohibited from holding public meetings, public processions, public rallies, road shows and interviews, public utterances in media (print, electronic and social media) for about 72 hours.
Besides the punishment, an FIR under Section 509 of IPC and Section 125 of Representation of the People Act, 1951 has been filed against the senior SP leader for his ‘disgraceful’ comment against Jaya Prada.
On April 14, former minister Azam Khan hurled a below the belt ‘khaki’ remark on Jaya Prada, who is set to contest the election against Azam Khan from Rampur constituency in the poll.
“I brought her (Jaya Prada) to Rampur. You are a witness that I did not allow anyone to touch her body. It took you 17 years to identify her real face but I got to know in 17 days that she wears khaki underp****,” said Azam Khan while addressing an election rally in Meerut.
