Lucknow: A FIR has been lodged against Samajwadi Party leader Mohd Azam Khan in Rampur for making objectionable remarks against actor-turned-politician Jaya Prada who is contesting the Lok Sabha elections on a BJP ticket.

The Rampur police have booked Khan under Section 509 of the Indian Penal Code for insulting the modesty of a woman.

Khan, while addressing a rally in his constituency on Sunday, had reportedly said: “It took you 17 years to identify the real face of these people but I got to know in 17 days that they (‘yeh’) wear khaki underwear.”

Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav was present at the rally where he made the remarks.

Union Minister Sushma Swaraj, in a tweet, asked Samajwadi patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav to take note of the statement.

“Mulayam bhai, you are the patriarch of the Samajwadi Party. In Rampur, Draupadi’s ‘cheer haran’ is happening in front of you. Don’t commit the mistake of staying silent like Bhishma Pitamah.”

The reference to Draupadi added fuel to the fire and Khan’s supporters claimed that it was the union Minister who had insulted Jaya Prada by comparing her to the mythological character.

The National Commission of Women (NCW) has issued a notice to Azam Khan.

Citing news reports, the NCW said that the alleged remarks made by him were “offensive, unethical and show disrespect towards the dignity of women”.

NCW Under Secretary Barnali Shome said the Commission strongly condemns such irresponsible and disparaging remarks.

Meanwhile, a visibly upset Jaya Prada said on Tuesday that Azam Khan should not be allowed to contest elections after making such remarks.

“He should not be allowed to contest the elections because if this man wins, what will happen to democracy? There will be no place for women in society.

Where will we go? Should I die? Will you be satisfied then? You think that I will get scared and leave Rampur but I will not leave,” she said.

Mohd Azam Khan, on the other hand, denied having taken the name of Jaya Prada while making the statement.

“I used the word ‘inhe’ and ‘uske’ and not even once did I take her name. One particular channel did mischief and added the lady’s name. I have the original recording and I am willing to face any court on the matter. The media should also behave responsibly while reporting facts,” he said on phone.

Meanwhile, Azam Khan stoked a fresh controversy on Monday when he asked people not to be afraid of officials.

“Do not be afraid of Collectors. You know that our alliance is with Mayawati. When we come to power I will make these Collectors clean her footwear,” he said at an election meeting.

‘Love jihad’: Samajwadi Party to oppose law in UP Assembly, here’s why

A day after Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel signed the ordinance on forced religious conversions, the Samajwadi Party announced that it will oppose the ‘love jihad’ law when it comes up in the Assembly next month.

Samajwadi Party (SP)President Akhilesh Yadav said his party is not in favour of such a law and will oppose it strongly.

“On one hand, the government offers Rs 50,000 to those opting for inter-caste and inter-religion marriages, and on the other, they have brought this law. We will ask the government to bring a law which guarantees doubling of farmers’ income instead,” he said.

The SP chief accused the BJP government of planning to sell a government-owned shopping mall worth Rs 1,000 crore to a private entity at throwaway prices. He further added that an expressway was also being sold in a similar fashion.

“This will be probed when time comes. We will expose the corruption this government is indulging in,” he said.

Akhilesh further said it is ironic that the government talks of zero tolerance for corruption but, in an international survey, the country has figured on the top of the list of nations where bribery is most prevalent.

Reacting to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s announcement of setting up 10,000 MW solar power units, Yadav said, “He does not know anything about a solar panel. During the SP government, we had set up a solar power unit. The unit produced enough power to meet the needs of an entire village, but this government snapped the supply saying the villagers have not paid bills.”
