Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath slammed Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan over his ‘uderwear’ remark. Yogi said that our government had formed ‘anti-romeo-squad’ for people like Khan who doesn’t know how to respect a lady and uses abusive languages in his speech.
“Our government has constituted anti-Romeo squad for persons like Azam,” he said addressing a gathering in Hardoi.
Earlier, Election Commission had taken action against both Yogi Adityanath and Azam Khan for their controversial remarks that they made in their speeches. Both the leaders were banned from addressing any rally for a period of 72-hrs.
In his earlier rally at Sambhal, the Chief Minister without taking the name of Khan said, “A ‘jeev’ (human being) of SP lives in Rampur… What kind of language he used for Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar… Today Mayawati ji is seeking votes for those who had disrespected Baba saheb… What kind of language he uses against mothers and daughters?”
SP leader Azam Khan, who is contesting elections from Rampur, had said, “You made the person your representative for 10 years. Understanding the person’s real face you took 17 years. I realised in 17 days that the underwear beneath is of the khaki colour.”
For this statement, he was heavily criticized by the Bharatiya Janata Party and his opponent from Rampur, Jaya Prada. Jaya responded to Khan, “Azam Khan has insulted not only me but all the women of Rampur. Every woman wants to be respected but Azam Khan is compelled by his habits. People here are not going to forgive him,” while she was addressing a rally in Rampur, a few days ago.
Slamming the Congress and SP-BSP-RLD alliance, Yogi Adityanath said, “Remember the Congress government when the then prime minister Manmohan Singh had said that Muslims had the first right over the country’s resources while Mayawati in a rally in Saharanpur asked Muslims to unite and vote for the BSP-SP alliance… I have never sought votes in the name of caste or religion,” he said.
Adityanath had also claimed that the SP-BSP-RLD alliance will get zero seats in the first two phase elections which held in the state so far. UP will vote in all seven-phases of Election which will continue till May 19. While the votes will be counted on May 23 across the country.
