Lucknow, April 22: A case has been registered against BJP’s Rampur candidate Jaya Prada for giving advice to BSP chief Mayawati about Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan.
AS Bahujan Samaj Party has joined hands with Samajwadi party and actor- turned-politician, who was at the centre of a row over Azam Khan’s sexist remarks, told a gathering in Rampur that the way Khan was commenting on her, the “BSP chief can imagine what all he will be looking at with his X-Ray vision if she comes along with him”.
The Election Commission had barred him from campaigning for 72 hours after his derogatory comments against the actor. Khan had told a gathering, “… you got represented (by her) for 10 years. (aapne das saal apna pratinidhitwa karwaya)”. People of Rampur, people of Uttar Pradesh and people of India, it took you 17 years to understand her reality. But, I could recognise it in 17 days that she wears a khaki underwear. (Rampur waalo, Uttar Pradesh waalo, Hindustan waalo, usski asliyat samajhne mein aapko 17 baras lag gaye. Main 17 dinon mein pehchaan gaya ki inke neeche kaa jo underwear hai, woh khaki rang kaa hai).”
Although Jaya Prada is trying to play the ‘sympathy card’ by portraying herself as a victim.
