Lucknow, Oct 25 With Azam Khan’s wife Tanzeen Fatima now winning his Rampur seat in the bypolls on Thursday, the state assembly will now see the mother and son together in the House.
Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan and his son Abdullah Azam had won the 2017 Assembly elections and were members of the state assembly. This was Azam Khan’s ninth term from Rampur while Abdullah Azam had just made his political debut from Suar in the same district.
While Azam Khan played an active role in the House proceedings, Abdullah Azam was often seen sitting in the back rows and keenly observing the proceedings of the House. He rarely interacted with the media and did not join the party’s shouting brigade that often disturbed the Assembly.
Azam Khan resigned from the Assembly in June after he won the Lok Sabha elections from Rampur.
