Rampur: Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan has once again stirred up controversy with his recent statement. He said, “God’s revenge is very cruel.”
Taking a dig at the Congress, he added, “Not even a piece of Rajiv Gandhi’s body was found, who had the highest number of MPs during his tenure.”
He made these remarks while campaigning in support of a party candidate for the position of Chairman of Rampur Municipal Corporation.
During the election campaign in Rampur, he stated, “I have witnessed the era of Indira Gandhi. In Rajiv Gandhi’s government, there were the most MPs, but look how not even a piece of his body was found.
People like Sanjay Gandhi fly in the sky but end up in pieces. So, if the government changes once, a significant line will be drawn.”
Azam Khan’s Controversial Statement During Election Campaign Azam Khan mentioned his political experience and the entire administration system while saying, “This is the experience of 40-42 years in politics. The police officers will change.
Those police officers who broke the doors of your house and those who tripped you will salute you standing here.”
It should be noted that Azam Khan was campaigning for Fatima Jabin, the Samajwadi Party candidate contesting for the position of Chairman of Rampur Municipal Corporation.
After coming to power in 2017 under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the BJP had filed more than 90 criminal cases against former MLA Azam Khan from Rampur.
In October, the State Legislative Assembly declared Azam Khan disqualified after a court sentenced him to three years in jail in a hate speech case.
In April 2019, during an election rally in Rampur, a case was registered against him for making serious allegations against administrative officials, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
During the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, a case was registered against Azam Khan for delivering an inflammatory speech during a public meeting in the Khatauliya village of the Kotwali area.
Prior to that, in May 2022, the Allahabad High Court granted interim bail to Azam Khan in a case related to illegal possession of a property owned by the Waqf Board.
